We’ve put a tasty Greek spin on bruschetta to create the perfect nibble to pair with a crisp glass of wine on a summer afternoon. Ciabatta gets a quick sauté in Kosterina Extra Virgin Olive Oil and is topped with whipped feta and the traditional chopped tomato recipe (using those delicious local tomatoes we’re grabbing at the farmers’ market). You’ll want to make a double batch of the whipped feta because it’s pretty delish with pita chips and veggie crudites. You will be making this tasty app all summer!
