    Little bites of bliss, bursting with all the flavours of the Mediterranean – here, sundried tomatoes are marinated with a blend of Italian herbs. These snacks are so delicious, your guests will never guess how healthy they really are.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 16 sundried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
    • 1/2 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
    • 1/3 loaf Vienna bread, about 180 g
    • 6 large fresh basil leaves

    Directions

    1. Place the tomatoes in a medium bowl. Add 5 tablespoons of the Italian dressing and toss to coat evenly. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cut the bread diagonally into 8 slices, about 1 cm thick.
    2. Stack the basil leaves and tightly roll them up lengthways. Cut them crossways into very thin slices to make ‘chiffonade’.
    3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C. Arrange the slices of bread on a baking tray and brush both sides with the remaining dressing. Bake the crostini until they are light golden, about 3 minutes on each side. Divide the tomatoes evenly among the bread slices. Bake until they are heated through, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and keep warm. Serve 2 crostini per person.
