My hubby gets credit for the title! I told him how to make this over the phone and he says I said something about "Even an idiot can make this" -- which I of course deny! But now he calls it that. The best part about this bruschetta is EVERYTHING! But a cautionary note...this is NOT low-cal!! However, if you want to WOW a guest, this easy appetizer or snack is a sure-thing!
