Here’s what you need:

Combine cream cheese, green onion, red pepper, salt and pepper into a bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over top of slice avocado to prevent browning. Toast the bread slices. Spread cheese mixture to toasted bread, top with avocado and crab meat. Use the left over green onions and sesame seeds to garnish. Chomp immediately! hehe

This dish can be served with a side of fruit for an easy lunch of elevated with a side of spinach salad for an elegant dinner (could even use as appetizers for company). So versatile and delicious.
