Tomato & Basil Bruschetta

| Added by: | All author's recipes 209 | All author's tips 149 | Rating: likes 0, dislikes: 0

Tomato & Basil Bruschetta is a delicious and mouth watering Italian appetizer. It is a quick and easy recipe made from fresh and simple ingredients.
Bruschetta comes from the Italian word ‘bruscare’ which means “to roast over coals.” In its simplest form, Bruschetta requires that bread be toasted over real coals or grilled, then rubbed down with slices of raw garlic, drizzled with olive oil and finished with a little bit of sea salt and fresh pepper. Variations may include toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, basil, onion, mozzarella or cheese.
The right type of bread and tomatoes play an important role in the making of this dish. You should typically use thick slices of a good rustic bread like French baguette or Italian bread. For best results, the tomatoes should be fully ripe, red and juicy. 

While Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer, it can also be paired with green salad or a bowl of soup to get a perfect light meal. Although it can be enjoyed during any time of the year, it's refreshing flavors make it especially popular in the summer months.
