Recipe – Pineapple Mango Bruschetta

Yesterday (Tax Day) is one of the most stressful days of the year in my office.  To take a mental break, I was daydreaming about new recipes and came up with this.  I made it last night and it was outstanding…  I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Ingredients:

2 Cups Fresh Pineapple, diced
2 Cups Fresh Mango, diced
2 Cups Fresh Red Bell Pepper, diced
1 Bunch Green Onion, chopped
2 Tbsp Fresh Basil, chopped
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
Red Pepper Flakes
Sea Salt
4 Tbsp Fat-Free Cream Cheese
1 Cloves Garlic, chopped
4 Seeded, Hard Dinner Rolls (I use Seeduction rolls from Whole Foods.  A baguette would work too, but I have not found a seeded one

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°.  Cut dinner rolls into slices and place them on a baking sheet.  Bake until well toasted, approximately 10 min.

Combine Pineapple, Mango, Red Bell Pepper, Green Onion, and Basil in a large mixing bowl.  Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar (I used 25 year aged; the older, the better).  Add Red Pepper Flakes and Sea Salt to taste; I added more pepper, I like the sweet and hot combination.  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Mix Cream Cheese and Garlic.  Spread evenly on toasted bread.  Top with marinated salad.
