Recipe Ingredients for Bruschetta

2 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup basil, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Bruschetta

  1. Chop everything & toss in a bowl, drizzling the mixture of oil & vinegar on it. I like to just drop it onto some crispy toast, just before serving it. You should toast the bread, I like to use multigrain, and let it cool, crisp, then you need a thin layer of oil (olive) or margarine to prevent the liquid from the bruschetta topping from soaking into the toast & making it soft. Some restaurants bastardize this simple recipe (or USA it up, as we like to say) by adding cheese. Don't do that.

  2. If you want to be really authentic about it, cut a baguette in half and then into pieces (bite size is a good idea), brush with olive oil and bake at 375 degrees until brown & crispy. Then drop the bruschetta topping on all the pieces & serve it.
