We’ve been attending and hosting a lot of BBQ’s this summer. I am not complaining, I love eating outside with friends, family, and good food. Josh and I usually eat outside on our patio, even when we don’t have company. It’s hard to stay inside when the weather is so nice. Utah is hot, but luckily it cools down in the evenings:) One of my favorite appetizers to make for summer parties is this Greek Salad Bruschetta. It is easy, fresh, and a great way to use up garden cucumbers and tomatoes.
To make the bruschetta, I cut a French baguette into slices. You can toast the bread in the oven or on the grill. We already had the grill on and I didn’t want to heat up the house, so Josh grilled the baguette slices. Plus, I like the slight smoky flavor the grill adds to the bread.
The Greek bruschetta topping is easy to make. Dice up tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, and red onion. Stir the ingredients together with red wine vinegar, feta cheese, and season with a dash of oregano, salt, and pepper. Top the baguette slices with the Greek salad topping and serve.
Put your garden cucumbers and tomatoes to good use this summer and make this Greek Salad Bruschetta. This easy appetizer is perfect for any summer barbeque or party. It also makes a great healthy snack or light lunch.
