Zucchini Bruschetta Bites

Zucchini Bruschetta Bites
Bruschetta is grilled bread rubbed with olive oil and garlic that I like to top with fresh tomatoes and seasoned with a hit of balsamic vinegar. These zucchini bruschetta bites are a tasty alternative where the toast is replaced with slices of zucchini making for some light, bite sized treats! Zucchini is one of my favourite summer vegetables and it's always nice to be able to use it in fun and tasty ways and bruschetta is a great way to enjoy it! As nice as zucchini bruschetta is all by itself it can be a little messy as the tomatoes like to jump off so I top it with some melted mozzarella which helps keep things together; you can never go wrong adding cheese! Whether you are looking for an appetizer, snack or even a light meal these zucchini bruschetta bites are the perfect summer finger food!
