Here’s a recipe that transforms bruschetta by deconstructing it and turning it into a salad. All of the deliciousness plus added nutritiousness. One of my go-to bruschetta recipes is a concoction of tomatoes, olives, beans, greens and some herbs and seasoning (oil, vinegar, pepper, salt). But you can only get so much of that on […]
