Tomato Goat Cheese Salad:
Phyllo Cups: Place 1 sheet of phyllo on work surface, keeping remainder covered with damp towel to prevent drying out. Brush sheet lightly with some of the butter. Top with second sheet; brush with butter. Repeat with third sheet. Cut lengthwise into 5 strips and crosswise into 6 strips to make 30 squares. Press each into lightly greased 1-3/4-inch (1.7 cm) mini-muffin or tart cup.
Bake in centre of 400°F oven until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool on rack. Repeat with remaining phyllo and butter. (Make-ahead: Store in single layer in airtight container for up to 2 days. Or freeze for up to 2 weeks; reheat frozen on rimmed baking sheet in 375°F (190°C) oven for 5 to 10 minutes.)

(Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Add avocado; toss to combine. Spoon into phyllo cups.
