App is for Appetizer

Do you have basil growing in your herb garden? Are you looking for ways to use it up? If so have I got a recipe for you!! This is so tasty - and good for you too! A yummy appetizer before dinner or a barbeque, or to take to someone's cottage...

Bruschetta

1 cup creamy ricotta cheese
1/2 cup mild chevre cheese
green onion and fresh basil, chopped
Mix the cheeses together and add chopped green onion and chopped fresh basil, to taste.

2 1/2 cups chopped Roma tomatoes
8-10 sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 or 3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tblsp. red wine vinegar (last time I used balsamic and it was equally good)
2 Tblsp. olive oil
dash of salt and pepper
Mix all together.

Spread cheese mixture on small slices of fresh baguette, top with tomato mixture. Serve. SOOO good!!
Refrigerate if there are any leftovers (keeps several days, but I bet it won't last that long.)

Peace,
Linda

We love bruschetta. I just bought a fresh basil plant yesterday too. I think this will be on the menu for sure.
