One of my favorites at the Manassas Farmers Market is The Fruitful Forest. Virginie has some great locally harvested wild mushrooms that I use all season long. This was something I picked up last fall and am now sorry I hadn’t used it sooner. This is a great switch up from the traditional tomato based bruschetta. I hope you like it.
