It’s so nice that the weather is warm & it’s so inviting to be outside. The week before last we were in the 50’s with rain. Then the sun made an appearance last week. I can’t complain – I’m loving that it’s not over 100 degrees outside. However, it’s still warm enough that I don’t want to eat heavy. When it’s hot I certainly don’t like heavy food. So I wanted to share with you all today my super simple recipe for Easy Garlic Bruschetta. It’s the perfect summer appetizer. Looking for Easy Family Dinner Ideas?
We LOVE garlic. We add large amounts to almost every dish. Do you like garlic?
After I added this to the toasted bread I decided to add a little bit of my Sweet Garlic Avocado Dip to the top. The blend of sweet with the garlic bruschetta was perfect.
I could snack on this all day long! Perfect summer appetizer.
