garlicky tomato basil bruschetta.
This was my night last week when we met up with friends for a picnic in Laguna Beach. And so in the end I went with bruschetta because it’s simple, delish, and always a crowd pleaser. And did you know bruschetta doesn’t have to be toasted bread with tomato/basil mixture on top? That’s right, you can change it up by topping with meats, cheeses, vegetables, beans, or red peppers.
Garlicky Tomato Basil Bruschetta
(approx. 12 pieces)
What You’ll Need:
4 roma tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
3 cloves minced garlic
3 tablespoons basil, chopped
sea salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
toasted baguette slices (I brush on both sides with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and broil a minute or two on each side…watch closely)
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Refrigerate 30 minutes so flavors can get to know each other. Spoon tomato mixture on top of baguette slices and serve.
TOTAL: $3.95 or $.32 per piece.
