Here’s a Perfect Way to Use Fresh Summer Tomatoes


One of my favorite things about summer is the availability of fresh, perfectly ripe tomatoes. I know you can get great tomatoes year round, but local summer tomatoes are just amazing. I especially love tomato salads—and my favorite is the Italian caprese, with fresh mozzarella and basil. I decided to twist this classic salad a bit and turn it into a bruschetta appetizer. 

My idea paid off, because this bruschetta is SO good. The bread makes it easy to eat as finger food, and provides the perfect crunchy base to contrast the fresh salad topping. These are perfect to serve at a BBQ, for a brunch, or even as lunch with a small green salad on the side.  This appetizer celebrates the flavors of summer and it’s sure to be a hit at your next gathering.
