The Best Bruschetta Recipe
This is, quite literally, the best bruschetta recipe in the history of the entire world.
- 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
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.
