Tomato & Garlic Bruschetta Bread

This appetiser is just wonderful with any dish! I love ripe fresh tomato with garlic and this dish is so well received at dinner parties! I have substituted apple juice for olive oil in part of this recipe to make the dish reasonably low-fat, some recipes call for 1/2 cup oil! The apple juice works beautifully with tomato!

Excellent flavors. The only change I made was I used a red onion instead of the Spanish and sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top. This made for a great lunch. The apple juice is a great idea to cut some of the fat. Thanks Made for PAC Spring 2010 :)
