  1. Put the red onion in a bowl with the white wine vinegar, caster sugar and salt; set aside for at least 15 mins to pickle.
  2. Meanwhile, mash the avocados with the lemon juice and season to taste. Heat the grill to hot. Toast the bread and arrange on a baking sheet. Slice the goat’s cheese logs into 8 rounds each. Top each toast with 3 goat’s cheese rounds, then grill for 2-3 mins until melted.
  3. Spoon over the mashed avocado and top with the smoked salmon slices and the pickled red onion. Season with black pepper, scatter with a little salad cress and serve with lemon wedges, if you like.

Tip: Swap orange juice for chilled clementine juice in your Buck’s Fizz to make it extra special.
