I think of New Year’s Eve appetizers as glorious. Over the top. Choux pastry with salmon, a perfect shrimp topped with a lemon curl, an entire wheel of cheese.

But all of that style is time-consuming. So it really helps to have a few recipes that are high on flavor but easy to make. Enter Fusion Bruschetta.

Fusion Bruschetta

The recipe comes from friends we vacationed with in Captiva last winter. It was a wonderful trip, relaxing and beautiful! We’re going again with the kids.

Start with toasted French Bread slices

Now one of the lovely surprises of the vacation was all the cooking-among-friends that occurred. Lots of delicious food with lots of fun couples! They do call this paradise! Top with souped up salsa

I decided to name this appetizer “fusion” bruschetta because it combines elements of Mexican and Italian cooking. They meld perfectly in this.

And as promised, ready in a flash.

    You can never go wrong with bruschetta. It’s so versatile and appeals to so many. We have those plates!! Actually have quite a collection of that pattern. I love seeing old glassware in posts.
