Caprese Bruschetta

Caprese Bruschetta

Over the weekend, we attended our monthly Couples Euchre night and I brought this dish.  It was pretty cool because we started playing this game on a monthly basis in July of 2006 – so this weekend marked the 10 year anniversary of our game night.  We even have four couples still playing that were part of the original group!

I brought this Caprese Bruschetta – I had a TON of basil in my garden, so decided to make a lot of pesto.  Then I decided to turn a caprese salad into a bruschetta – it was fresh, summery, and delicious!

Caprese Bruschetta
Yields 16 Bruschetta Slices

6 Roma tomatoes

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 baguette

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 16 slices

1/2 cup pesto (either store bought or homemade)

Salt & Pepper


Dice the tomatoes and combine with the garlic and olive oil. Season with salt & pepper.

Cut 16 slices from the baguette.

Top each baguette slice with a piece of mozzarella, some of the tomato mixture, and a drizzle of pesto.

Serve immediately.
