There are times that I have no time to prepare a meal or there are no leftovers from the day before. So much to do… Time just seems to fly! So normally when this happens I try to make something simple but tasty. Nothing can go wrong with Bruschetta toasts. They are made with homemade tomato sauce and fresh herbs. I can make this Bruschetta come together in 20 minutes. While they are baking in the oven you can prepare a delicious mouthwatering tomato and cucumber salad. You will be amazed in how well they both combine together.
