Back when the pandemic first started and Panera had their grocery program, I would buy a French baguette, cut it into portions and freeze it.  We’d use it for sandwiches, garlic bread, and my favorite –  bruschetta.  Such a simple and delicious dish that I would serve with dinner every now and then.

Here were are, two years later.  The weather is starting to warm up again and I’ve been craving lighter bites made with fresh and crispy veggies.  So recently, I made bruschetta with dinner.  But this time, I made a Greek inspired bruschetta – a slightly more loaded bruschetta topped with a classic combination of Mediterranean flavors.

Traditional bruschetta is made with garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, fresh basil, and I like to add chopped onion.  This Greek Bruschetta recipe is made with garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, Kalamata olives, chopped cucumber, onions, and a sprinkle of goat cheese and oregano.  A small bite with big flavor and a perfect springtime starter or side dish!

This Greek Bruschetta recipe is a great way to use up day old baguette or vegetables sitting in your crisper drawer.  Just chop, toast, spoon, and serve this delicious Mediterranean appetizer or side dish with your favorite entrée!

Let’s start this recipe by creating our bruschetta mixture.  Chop up the tomatoes, Kalamata olives, cucumbers, and onions.  Add the mixture to a bowl and add olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper, and oregano.  Mix everything up and set aside.

Now, we’ll slice up our baguette.  Make sure the slices are about 1/2″ thick.  Then, we’re going to place the sliced baguette onto a large baking sheet, brush them with olive oil, and bake for about 8 minutes at 425 degrees.

Once the bread is crusty and golden brown, allow it to cool slightly, then rub a garlic clove over the top of each slice of bread.  When you’re ready to serve the bruschetta, spoon the tomato mixture onto each slice of bread.

Finish off the bruschetta with a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese and serve!
