Simple Snacks: Fresh Italian Bruschetta

By July 17, 2013April 15th, 2019Appetizers, Cooking, Snacks

Personally I have always been a fan of the flavors in Bruschetta – tomatoes, basil, garlic and onions. However, I have never really been a fan of the hard, crusty bread that it is typically served on.

But when I spotted the new Triscuit made with Tomato and Sweet Basil, a light bulb went off and thought perhaps the same Italian flavors of Bruschetta would go perfect on these new snack crackers.

With a light spread of softened cream cheese and topped with a mixture of fresh tomatoes, basil and green onions from our garden and Italian dressing for a burst of flavor, this Fresh Italian Bruschetta goes together in minutes.

And to bring in a little more authentic Italian flavor, I added a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese.
