Bruschetta For Lunch

Bruschetta is a delicious and 
healthy Italian appetizer.
It is great for lunch.
It can be prepared in many variations.
One of my favourite Bruschetta
 is chicken and avocado with basil.

My measurements are approx. 
I used Italian bread,
other crusty breads will do.
2 roma/italian tomatoes
(other tomatoes can be used also)
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup chopped basil
1 shallot chopped
3/4 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 avocado chopped
1/2 grated mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle
Kraft sun-dried and oregano salad dressing.
(If you don't have the salad dressing use
 olive oil, balsamic vinegar, oregano and pepper.)

Place bread on a cookie sheet and brush with olive oil.
Toast bread in oven for about 10 mins.

Remove seeds from tomatoes and chop up small.
Discard seeds, put tomatoes in a medium bowl

Chop the shallots, garlic and basil
add to the bowl.

Chop chicken and avocado
add to  bowl.

 add the mozzarella cheese.

Add approx. 1/2 cup salad dressing
Mix all together.

Pile filling on bread and sprinkle with parmesan cheese

The leftovers can be refrigerated and eaten later.
