Artichoke & White Bean Bruschetta with Smoky Tomato Dressing

artichoke bruschetta

If you’re a regular Eating Made Easy visitor, you know that I usually like to make my own salad dressing. There’s just something about homemade dressing that lifts a salad to the next level of deliciousness for me.

But sometimes, I find a spectacular store-bought dressing that can add unique flavor to all sorts of dishes. It’s these dressings that I like to keep on hand for quick recipe creation.

Most recently, I made this quick bruschetta using Annie’s smoky tomato dressing. The bruschetta topping can also be used as a salad topper or stuffed into a sandwich or wrap. It’s not only tasty but versatile!
