These little bruschetta are so easy to do and made a yummy treat for me and fiamma! (She ate the topping)

ingredients:

Handful of cherry tomatoes
1/2 avocado
Salt/pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Baguette sliced
3 large basil leaves
Balsamic vinegar reduction

To make:

Place the baguette slices on a sheet pan and drizzle with some olive oil. Bake at 350•f for about 5 minutes

Chop tomatoes into small pieces add chopped basil and the avocado cut into small pieces as well. Combine in a bowl with the olive oil and salt/pepper (a pinch of each should do it)

Once the brea ha slightly toasted, spoon a bit of the tomato mix on top.

Finally, drizzle the balsamic on-top. You don’t need a lot a it is very sweet. Just a small amount will do. You can buy reduced balsamic at the grocery or make it yourself very easily. It is just balsamic cooked down with honey or sugar.

Enjoy these alone, or at a party with friends. Thy make a great finger snack and are healthy too!
