Bruschetta, an appetizer that dates back to 15th-century Italy, can be prepared with a variety of toppings. This sweet, yet savory, recipe features plums, which are high in vitamin C and also a good source of vitamin A.
Slice baguette into 24 one-inch-thick pieces. Toast in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven until golden brown. Spread each slice of bread with fat-free cream cheese. Slice plums into thin slices. Place several slices of plum on each piece of bruschetta. Garnish with fresh basil leaf.
