Bruschetta, a classic Italian appetizer. It’s so tasty, simple, made with 8 natural and healthy ingredients, and ready in just 15 minutes.
3 medium tomatoes, diced
1–2 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 baguette, French bread or similar Italian bread
Combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Feel free to add more or less oil. Set aside.
Use a bread knife to slice the bread on the diagonal, making 1/2 or 3/4 inch thick slices (about 1 to 2 cm).
Toast the bread. I always use a griddle but feel free to use a grill pan, a skillet, a toaster, the oven, etc. Some people add some oil to the bread before toasting it, but I think that’s not necessary.
Place the bread on a platter and top with the tomato mixture.
Serve immediately and toast the bread right before serving.
