    Make-Ahead and Storage

    Make-Ahead: These are meant to be eaten as soon as you are done making them.

    How to Store: You can store these if you keep the toast separate from the avocado. Cover and keep the toast at room temperature for up to 3 days. For the avocado, mix with some fresh lemon juice, cover, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
