I love Costco's focaccia bread so I used that instead of baguettes. Baguettes really make a difference, but with only two people, we wouldn't be able to finish a whole baguette before it went stale. I blended up a few plum tomatoes, garlic, EVOO, and salt in my Vitamix to make a chunky tomato juice that I could easily spread over the bread. It turned out pretty well. I just wish I had gone to get some anchovies and green olives.
For the salad I simply boiled the corn, no salt or butter added, and cut it off the cob for a topper. I also opened a large can of tuna (in water) to split between the two of us and used the excess tomato sauce I made for Spanish-style tomato bread as a dressing. I liked this as a dressing because it's low in fat, but added a subtle richness to the salad. I got avocados from Costco, but they weren't nearly ripe enough to eat. I tried cutting one up, but it was so hard that I when I tried biting into a piece it left teeth marks like a piece of foam. I never knew that avocado was that dense when not ripe. Live and learn.
