I recently went to blogher food, and tried this great recipe from StarKist Tuna. These were light and very refreshing. I would have never thought about this flavor combination, but you know, it can't be beat! I think this would be perfect for light appetizers in the summer heat.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
1 pouch (2.6 oz.) or 1 can (5 oz.) StarKist® Chunk White Tuna in Water (if canned, drained and chunked)
16 slices French bread, about ½ -3/4 inch thick and 3-½ by 5-½ inches wide
4 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups chopped plum tomatoes
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese or 1 cup fresh Mozzarella, chopped and drained
2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
4 pieces Bibb lettuce
Blend garlic and oil. Brush olive oil mixture on one side of each piece of bread. Reserve remaining oil.
In a medium bowl, lightly combine tomatoes, cheese, tuna, parsley and reserved oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place about ¼ cup mixture on each piece of toast. Place one piece of Bruschetta on each lettuce lined plate.
