The Best Bruschetta Recipe

This is, quite literally, the best bruschetta recipe in the history of the entire world.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh garden tomatoes
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped basil
  • Sweet balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • Fresh crusty bread

Instructions

  • Using a bread knife, gently chop the tomatoes into small pieces. Place the tomato pieces into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle the tomatoes with the olive oil.
  • Give the tomatoes a small pinch of sea salt and a few good grindings of fresh black pepper. How much salt you need with vary based on your tomato variety, so don’t overdo it! Start slow.
  • Add in that delicious basil… mmm…. smelling like summer, isn’t it?! Stir to combine.
  • Meanwhile, place some thick bread slices under the broiler for a few minutes or into the toaster.
  • Once the bread is nice and toasted, rub it gently with the garlic clove. This adds a nice hint of garlic to the dish without it being a punch of garlic in the face.
  • Place the toasted garlic bread on a dish. Drizzle the bread with balsamic vinegar.
  • Lastly, scoop a big ‘ol pile of bruschetta onto the toast. Enjoy.
