Recipe: Sage and Mint Bruschetta

Sandwiches and bruschetta with herbs

Sage and MintI use often the sage and mint combo during autumn, because they look green and healthy even in these months.

This bruschetta was inspired by the tapenade and improvised with ingredients I had in my fridge.
It has a rich aroma and a refreshing taste, and it's an excellent appetizer for a hot autumn lunch.
