Use homemade or store-bought pesto for this filling and flavorful breakfast. If you're going the store-bought route, opt for a refrigerated variety. It will taste fresher and look more vibrant than a shelf-stable brand.


  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto

  • 2 slices whole-grain bread, toasted

  • 2 ounces sliced smoked salmon

  • 2 teaspoons teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 lemon)


  1. Spread 1 tablespoon pesto on each piece of toast. Top evenly with salmon. Sprinkle with lemon zest.
