Brushetta Topping Recipe

Here is a great brushetta topping recipe, contributed by my daughter Erika, which we enjoy often all summer long.

A quick and easy, very tasty topping you might like to try, using fresh tomato, avocado, basil and freshly grated parmesan cheese.

We like making these appetizers using Italian bread sliced about 3/4" thick, brushed with a little olive oil and lightly toasted.
