This fun, fruity appetizer is a great way to kick off a summer celebration. With the availability of fresh fruit all year round now, you can also enjoy this during the colder months.

    • 1 loaf French bread, cut into 1/2 inch slices
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
    • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
    • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
    • 1 cup grated Romano cheese
    Preheat broiler. Spread bread slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Broil until lightly toasted on each side (1-2 minutes then flip and toast broil an additional 1-2 minutes). Remove from broiler and set aside. In a bowl, mix all remaining ingredients except cheese. Top each slice of bread with equal amounts of mango mixture. Sprinkle with cheese to taste. Return to broiler for 2-3 additional minutes, until cheese has melted and is lightly browned. Serve hot.
