Garden Bruschetta

I love this Bruschetta recipe!  It’s from my Southern Living Homestyle Cookbook.  This is one of my favorite cookbooks…I can’t remember how I ended up with it but every time I make a recipe from this book it’s a winner!  (How often does that happen!!)  The recipe is simple, delicious and sure to impress!
