Ingredients

  • 8 firm Roma tomatoes - seeded and diced
  • 1/2 lb cooked shrimp 3 green onions - chopped
  • 8 oz baby mozzarella cheese balls 
  • 15 oz artichoke hearts 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp good quality basil pesto
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan 
  • 1 avocado
  • Balsamic glaze 
  • 1 French Baguette 
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine the seeded and diced tomatoes, chopped shrimp, green onion, quartered mozzarella balls, and chopped artichoke hearts.
  2. In a smaller bowl whisk together the minced garlic, salt and pepper, lemon juice, pesto and grated parmesan cheese.
  3. Carefully stir together the shrimp and tomato mixture with the pesto mixture. Cover and place in the refrigerator while toasting baguette slices.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice baguette into 1/4 inch thick pieces and lay them in an even layer on a baking sheet or baking stone.
