Hello Folks,
This appetizer combines a versatile pantry staple with fresh, fragrant ingredients for an easy dish everyone will love. It starts with a can of organic diced tomatoes that were picked at peak perfection. Next, garlic, basil, and salt are stirred in before everything is spooned over crunchy slices of bread. The tomatoes would also be a delicious addition to scrambled eggs or cooked quinoa. Just be sure to make the tomato topping in advance (it needs to chill for an hour), that way it’s ready whenever you are.
