I've made this several times... First time I was worried that the kids would not like it so I got them involved with making it.... They LOVED it and so did my wife and I. Wasnt sure if it was just the fact that they helped or not so wife made it for a outting that we had and they TORE IT UP!!! Great healthy AND delicious!!!! 5 stars!!!!
This was four stars as is and five with a few add-ins. Absolutely delicious. I used Feta cheese instead of blue-thats what I had on hand and I added in some fresh parsley with the basil. It def needs more salt than specified and I added a few dashes of paprika for some mild heat and a sprinkle of sugar. Cannot wait to make for some company.
Amazing. Don't forget the lime juice and zest. It really makes this pop. I catered a holiday party with this and the double tomato bruschetta and they were a total hit
These are good. I used regular tomato because that's what I had, and would also recommend chopping your veggies smaller for easier eating. I'd like to try this again using goat cheese or a little feta. The blue cheese is great, but always a bit of a scene-stealer. Thanks for the recipe!
Really delicious! Like others, I had trouble keeping it on the bread. Also, I tried it with finely chopped White onion - also fabulous.
I only used this recipe as an idea, I just used asparagus, tomotaoes, garlic, olive oil and seasoned feta cheese - very simple and elegant. I am sure the other ingrediants would have been nice but I did not think that they were necessary to the recipe and I did not have them on hand.
The flavors are great, but there's almost too many ingredients to safely put on a piece of bread without some of them falling off.
This was delicious!!! I made it for a holiday party and the red and green colors were beautiful. The taste was mouth watering. We love asparagus, so it was a real treat! Make sure that you use very "thin" asparagus spears, and don't overcook them. Ice bath is essential! Also, I made some with feta cheese, and some with goat cheese...I liked it better than the blue cheese! Thanks for a great recipe!
