Zucchini Bruschetta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Cookin-jo

A different twist on bruschetta and a great use for your zucchini. Use smaller zucchinis for this, try your favourite cheese if you don't like swiss, and substitute different herbs if you don't want to use basil. A very adaptable recipe!

I used cream cheese instead of mayo - everything else the same. I found it blah. Would not make again.
