Twist On Classic Bruschetta

We recently hosted a small cocktail party/fundraiser and made a number of new dishes. This appetizer is fantastic because it’s easy to make and guests really like it because it’s a great twist on the classic tomato and basil bruschetta. When hosting a party, I’m always looking for easy dishes that can be prepared ahead of time, and that can be set out once the party starts, which is why this dish is now a favorite of mine!
