I am hanging on to the last days of summer and using up all of the fresh tomatoes and basil to make this. Italian bruschetta (pronounced "brusketta") is a wonderful way to capture the flavors of ripe summer tomatoes, fresh garden basil, and garlic.
I love it on toasted french bread or baguette
I don't really have a recipe but I will try to give you what I think use.
8-10 fresh tomatoes seeds removed and chopped ( any kind works)
10 basil leaves chopped
5 cloves of garlic chopped finely(I often use much more)
1/2 of a purple onion chopped
2 tbls extra virgin olive oil (aprox)
1tbls balsamic vinegar
sea salt to taste
Mix all ingredients. Set aside. Toast slices of French bread or baguette. Serve tomato mixture, room temperature in bowl. Surround with bread slices. Can also set up a bit ahead of time, but it will get soggy quickly.
I also add chopped fresh mozzarella to mine, then it becomes a "meal" on a hot summer night ENJOY!! But beware it is addicting and it gives you horrible breath(but so worth it)
