Bruschetta Recipe

Bruschetta Recipe - 16 servings (1 slice bread with 1/4 cup tomato mixture)

Ingredients:

1 pound fresh, ripe plum tomatoes, chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 loaf Italian, Tuscan, or peasant bread

16 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

Method:

Combine tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Meanwhile, slice bread into approximately 16 half-inch slices. Toast under a preheated broiler or in a toaster oven for 2 to 3 minutes, or until brown on both sides. Just before serving, add olives, basil, and parsley to tomato mixture. Spoon mixture into a medium-size bowl and place in center of a basket or serving tray. Ring with toasted bread.

Variation: Lightly spread bread with Garlic Olive Oil before or after toasting. Pour some oil into a spray bottle and spray it on the bread. (Spraying allows a lot of flavor while using a very small amount of oil).

Serving Suggestion: Bruschetta works well as an appetizer or first course, especially with pasta, and is great on a picnic with roast or grilled chicken.
