[ We paired Hollywood & Vine 2480 cab with the appetizer ]

Out of all my recipes, this one definitely ranks in the top five. The look & taste of this homemade skinny bruschetta proved itself as the quintessential appetizer & the ideal complement to a glass of dry red wine. Tomatoes are a smart diet choice because they’re known to prevent cancer, contain tons of antioxidants [ specifically: lycopene ] & can even lower cholesterol. We enjoyed this while watching the sunset with Pixy. Bonus: the whole recipe takes a total of ten minutes!
