Buddha Butter Bruschetta
You won't believe your taste buds when you bite into this fantastically different bruschetta. Hau'ula grape tomatoes are mixed with basil, minced purple onion, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and that's just the beginning. There's definitely an art to eating these: Take a freshly made crostini, spread with our Buddha Butter, top with tomatoes and pop it in your mouth. This isn't one of those dishes you'll want to share, so be prepared when your co-workers come asking.
