Fresh and Tasty

On this hot Memorial Day weekend, what tastes better than fresh veggies?!? Not much! Today while I was on my weekly route through Wegmans I picked up some extra yummy ingredients to make a recipe that I saw on It is called bruschetta chicken and it is exactly how it sounds....ummmm delicious!!

Here is what you need:

(3) vine ripened tomatoes (0pts)

1/4 cup of red onion (0pts)

(2) small cloves of garlic (0pts)

(1) tbsp of good olive oil (3 pts)

(1) tbsp of balsamic vinegar(0pts)

(2) tbsp of fresh chopped basil (0pts)

salt and pepper to taste

The whole batch is only 3 points!!! And it serves ALOT!! The original recipe you are supposed to add mozzarella. I added it later and it didn't really enhance the flavor so for now on I'm leaving it out!

Here is what you do: Mix the oil and vinegar and then add the onion, salt and pepper. Set aside. Chop the tomatoes, garlic and basil and add to the marinated onions. And that's it!! Serve with some crusty ciabatta and it's a perfect app for a party or for yourself! And it tastes soooo fresh and so much better than what you can buy at the store.

Oh wait...that's not it! On she put the bruschetta on top of chicken! YUM! Try won't regret it! :) This isn't the best picture but you get the idea! You can see the fat free mozz I added.

I served this with a side salad. Overall awesome dinner. Very satisfying and relatively low in points. I couldn't stop eating the bread so I am fullll and happy :)
