fresh bruschetta

Bruschetta is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer. This weekend I happily scored 3 little organic tomatoes from my dad's garden (his fourth of july variety that are finally ready). I paired it with some fresh basil I had on hand, picked up some french bread, and enjoyed my first bruschetta experience of the season.

Simple bruschetta:
Garden tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic + red onion, drizzled with olive oil + balsamic vinegar, spooned on top of toasted french bread, topped with (not shown) mozzarella cheese.

Bruschetta is one of my favourite things to eat in Summer.
It's even better if you remove the pulp of the tomatoes, drizzle some sea salt over them and leave them in a collander over a bowl in the fridge for a couple of hours before you mix it with olive oil, garlic, herbs and finely chopped onion.

Eat on crusty 'pane di casa' and sigh in pleasure!

I had the best bruschetta in PULGIA some years back...at the beach. It was huge and the bread was grilled and the tomated had been warmed by the sun...ah italian food! Cant wait to go to SICILY this summer!
