1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese or 1/2 cup
1 1/2 teaspoons
fresh lime juice
fresh cilantro, finely snipped
scallions, finely chopped
finely chopped garlic
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Lay sliced French bread cut side up onto a baking sheet.
In a small bowl combine oil, cumin, and garlic powder; stir.
Brush the seasoned oil mixture onto the cut side of both bread halves with a pastry brush. Spread salsa evenly on top of bread halves. Sprinkle the halves with the Mexican cheese and top with crumbled Parmesan cheese or queso fresco cheese. Place into 425*F. oven.
Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is good and crusty.
While the bread is baking, prepare the relish.
In a medium size bowl, mix avocados, lime juice, cilantro, scallions, garlic, celery salt, and salt to taste. Set aside.
Remove the bread from the oven. Allow to cool a few minutes.
Using a serrated knife, slice bread halves across into 2 inch strips.
To serve put salsa bread strips on a nice plate or platter with avocado relish in a separate bowl. Enjoy!
