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!

A few high-quality ingredients come together in this delicious dish. Extra Virgin Olive Oil replaces mayonnaise, for a healthier salad that’s perfect for serving outdoors on hot days. And since the flavor improves while the salad sits in the fridge, you can make this ahead and serve it the next day.
