Bruschetta is such a perfect and classic dish, but here in Baltimore, we like to add CRAB! Usually served as an appetizer, I’ve been known to eat it as my main meal as long as I add a protein, sometimes shrimp, but most of the time it is crab. Buttery crab meat is light, doesn’t overpower the natural flavors of the vegetables and kicks up of the “elegance level” a few notches.
You can also add shredded mozzarella cheese and pop it under the broiler for a few minutes to serve hot and melty. Top on a larger piece of toasted bread and serve with a spring salad and Balsamic Vinaigrette for a light dinner.
