Caesar Bruschetta
Makes about 6 – 12 appetizer servings, or 12 pieces

Ingredients:
1 lb. Markets of Meijer Tomatoes on the Vine
1 small loaf rustic artisanal bread or baguette
(Bread free option:  replace bread with Romaine heart leaves or endive)
Olive oil for brushing
Sea Salt or Kosher salt for sprinkling
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 Tbsp finely diced red onion
2 – 3 tsp minced fresh garlic
3 Tbsp Bolthouse Farms Caesar Parmigianino Yogurt dressing
Garnish: freshly grated Parmesan cheese and small fresh basil leaves

Directions:
1. Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat.
2. Dice the tomatoes into 1/4 – 1/2″ pieces and set in a strainer to drain off excess juice while you continue with recipe.
3. Cut the bread with a serrated knife. If using a "fat" bread loaf, cut six 1/2″ slices, then cut each piece in half crosswise, making 12 pieces. If using a baguette, cut twelve 1/2″ diagonal slices from the loaf. (Use any remaining bread for another purpose.)
4. Lightly brush both sides of bread with oil and grill on each side until lightly marked or toasted. Sprinkle bread lightly with salt. Place on a platter.
5.    In a medium bowl, toss together the drained tomatoes, basil, onion, garlic, and Caesar dressing. Divide the tomato mixture between the grilled bread slices. Sprinkle with Parmesan and garnish with basil leaves if desired.
