This was a hit at mother's. Even the picky eaters loved it! I got requests to make it again. It does not make much however so I will at least double it for 6 or more people since it was such a hit. Just a nice different appetizer form the usual. Read More

Good bruschetta recipe but I also added diced roma tomatoes olive oil crushed garlic and salt/pepper to taste. The mango/tomato taste is amazing. I've found having made bruschetta many times that lots of cheeses are good with it- for this I used fresh grated parmesan and it was great (but gruyere is the best). Thanks! Read More

This is really great but you have to add some things. I took soft swiss cheese(about three triangles) and added green chilis(half a small can) a couple drops of red hot pepper sauce and a bit of garlic powder. Then I mixed that together and spread it on the brochetta just after crisping the bread as a base for the other flavors. I did everything else the same except I added roasted red bell peppers as well. DELISH party tray! Read More

I didn't like this much. I might try denise's suggestion and use tomato with the mango. Thanks anyway. Read More

I served this recipe at a dinner party for the first time. Everyone was looking at me like they were not going to like this dish. When I served it they were so surprised at the great taste and how great this birchetta appetizer turned out. It was a big hit! Read More

EXCELLENT!! I tried this recipe because it sounded refreshing. I added plum tomatoes and red onion with a little salt and pepper and it was awesome! My guests were raving about it and were surprised at how the flavors all melded together. I used the romano cheese and thought this had a great compliment to it. I see that others have suggested other cheeses so that may be something to try later. I would recommend this recipe if you are looking for something a bit different but be sure to add the extra ingredients that really make it a great recipe. Thanks to other reviewers for the suggestions! Read More
