Bruschetta is a traditional antipasto dish–or an Italian first course. This version features ripe local cherry tomatoes, plus fresh herbs, greens, and spreadable cheese. It makes a great snack! For a no-heat classroom cooking activity, provide kids with their own ingredients so they can assemble their own open-faced sandwich at their desk.
This fresh tomato sauce can be especially colorful when made with a variety of heirloom tomatoes. The associated lesson plan includes literature selections and fun tomato activities.
