Fitness star Kayla Itsines has revealed that the “secret ingredient” behind making the “best bruschetta ever” is taramasalata.
The 30-year-old from Adelaide shared exactly how she puts together her ‘to die for’ bruschetta with some Greek dipping sauce, sourdough bread, olive oil, diced cherry tomatoes, basil and some other herbs.
The bruschetta does well for breakfast, lunch or mezze snack – as it is often served in its native Greece.
Taramasalata is a pink paste or dip made from the salted and cured roe of the cod, carp or mullet, mixed with olive oil and spices.

‘Strawberry yogurt on toast with tomatoes,’ Kayla continued Instagram.
“Okay kidding – this isn’t yogurt, it’s my secret ingredient to make the best bruschetta ever. Here’s how to recreate my Kayla special.”
To make Kayla’s bruschetta, the 30-year-old said you need two slices of bread of your choice, toasted.
Then add a ‘splash of olive oil’ and spread a generous helping of taramasalata on the bread, before placing it on a ‘handful of diced cherry tomatoes’.
Garnish with chopped basil and herbs of your choice and finish with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, Kayla wrote.
“I promise you this is to die for, if you only have the secret ingredient.”
