Italian Tomato Bruschetta

Nothing says summer quite like the Italian classic, tomato bruschetta. It is so easy to make and tastes amazing with fresh Tomatoes and Basil from the garden.

Ingredients 

1 baguette

1 clove garlic

1 cup chopped tomatoes (we love using Cherry Tomatoes)

1 handful shredded basil

¼ finely diced red onion

1 – 2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp brown sugar

Salt and pepper to taste

Parmesan (grated)

Method

Slice the baguette in to rounds and toast in the oven with a splash of olive oil. Rub a whole clove of garlic across both sides of the toasted bread.

In a bowl, combine chopped fresh tomatoes, red onion, basil, balsamic Vinegar, oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper. 

Spoon onto the bread rounds and grate a little parmesan over the top. Best eaten immediately!

Variations

If you don't have Basil, use other seasonal herbs like Parsley, Marjoram and Oregano.

No balsamic vinegar?  Use freshly squeeze lemon juice instead!
