Greek Salad Bruschetta

{Only a few days left in the Star Fine Foods Giveaway! Enter here!}

Happy hump day! If you’ve been following me on Facebook then you know that I’ve been busy making very naughty desserts involving caramel, chocolate and yes, more pumpkin! So, I decided to take a break from the sugar high {aka my life} to bring you a healthy and very tasty appetizer or snack.

Behold! The Greek Salad Bruschetta. I LOVE greek salad. Like, beyond love. There’s just something about the tomatoes with the cucumbers, onions, olives and feta that makes me weak at the knees. Yes, vegetables that make me salivate.

And, believe it or not, there was a time in my life when I would prefer salad over dessert.

How insane is that?

Oh, how the tables have turned!

Now a days, I’m a sucker for dessert and my will power is like…. -2.  Yeah, that’s right. I’m in the negatives.

What’s your willpower number? On a scale starting from -2 {apparently} to 10, let’s hear ‘em!

In the mean time, make some of this. It’s good for you. And cute. And dainty. And healthy. And easy. And fun to eat. And garlicky. That pretty much sums this up. I had everything for this on hand but the baguette. And, if you don’t have greek salad dressing, use an italian one and throw in a few sprinkles of oregano. Simple!

Happy Wednesday!

    Looks DELICIOUS! I’d love to add some shrimp. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

    Okay… I’m probably around a 3. I do love dessert, but I am more of a savory person. I can resist sweets, but I don’t like to :) As long as I feel like I’ve eaten SOMETHING healthy during the day, my defenses are pretty weak :)

    I love greek salad too!!! But feta is to salads what hot sauce is to soups and stews… it just makes even terrible ones ok!
    My willpower is currently about 5, but given that it used to be 10 it is definitely waverring by the day. When I was a super skinny 24 year old I used to wonder how women in their late 20′s and early 30′s could allow themselves to be anything BUT super skinny. Um, hello. Food tastes good. I was too thin back then anyway, and Im happier as I am, but I probably shoudl TRY to get my willpower back on track at some point. Before I turn into Roseanne BArr.. :)
