One of my favorite restaurant treats in summer is Bruschetta. To me, the ripe tomatoes, basil, and olive oil on some nice crusty bread make a really perfect dinner. My family doesn’t agree at all. They think it makes a perfectly lovely snack before dinner. Without the tomato nonsense. My boys have no love for tomatoes. I can’t blame them. I really detested tomatoes as a child, too. I don’t detest them anymore
My tomatoes aren’t ready yet but my basil is, so I made a small amount of Bruschetta which was perfect for me and my husband to share late this afternoon. As the name says, it was very quick.
1. Combine everything.
2. Serve on bread or eat as a salad.
I served my Bruchetta on some toasted Cheddar Garlic Bread from the Great Harvest in Columbia, MD. If you’ve never tried this bread, I highly recommend it. It’s so great with soup, salad, chili and if you brush it with olive oil and cut it into bread stick size pieces, it grills really well too!
