Fresh Minty Bruschetta
Bruchetta is hands-down one of my favourite summer appetizers. I mean, what is not to like. A Fresh Minty Brushetta is your the best thing that can happen to you on a hot humid and hungry afternoon or any time of the day for that matter. Moreover, the perfect combination of tangy tomatoes and herbs along with crispy garlic and olive oil-laden bread makes this Italian dish a godsend. Also, the best part is that is so freaking easy, simple and quick to make.
Apparently, this Fresh Minty Bruschetta also makes for a light and airy appetizer. Something that you just wanna put together in no time and eat on the go. On the other hand, you can also serve this as a fancy party appetizer to your friends and family. Either way, it is always loved by everyone and is a total hit. Traditionally, Bruschetta is made using basil leaves but I often make a mint version as Basil leaves are not easily available in India.
