bruschetta is for lovers (of tomatoes)

it’s been a while since i made bruschetta, but it’s always a good go-to appetizer. it’s fresh, filling, and quick. as long as you don’t burn the bread.

this bruschetta uses only a few ingredients, including tomatoes, feta, and basil and is perfect for a summer night as a snack or party treat! it’s super fresh and light!

  1. I like the comment about burning the bread. I recognize the board and the table too.
