Bruschetta

Ingredients

1 loaf of crusty bread
5 medium tomatoes chopped
4 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tbs fresh basil

Preparation

1
Allow to stand for several hours to marinate. Slice bread at an angle, brush one side with olive oil, and broil on each side until brown.
2
Best when served immediately to avoid getting soggy. Ingredients may be adjusted depending on your taste.
3
Mix diced tomatoes (juice and all), minced garlic, olive oil, lime juice, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (keep the rest for later), basil, and salt and pepper (to taste).
4
Spoon mixture onto bread, and top with reserved Parmesan. Broil until cheese has melted.

Another variation is to spread fresh chevre (goat cheese) on the oiled toasted bread and add chopped pitted calamata olives in the tomato mixture.

About

Bruschetta can be served on toast, or eaten plain. Make a "big" batch, and use the left over mixture on pasta the next day. Bruschetta is a traditional Italian dish. It is pronounced "brusketta," in Italian, though it is commonly mis-pronounced "brushetta" in the United States.
