French bread, cut into 1-inch slices
Olive oil
1 1/4 cups Roma tomatoes, seeded and medium diced (about 3 to 4 tomatoes)
1/2 cup onion, small dice
6 basil leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush bread slices with olive oil and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until bread is crispy and edges are browned. Set aside.
Combine tomatoes, onion, basil and garlic in a bowl and mix well. Toss with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Serve on toast slices as a main course or snack.



Both red and white wine pair well with this simple bruschetta – one so laden with garlic that it seems to set your mouth on fire. It’s a simple dinner, but that doesn’t mean it’s a simplistic one.


2.0 to 3 servings
