bruschetta: it’s an italian restaurant appetizer go to. it’s also one of my easy recipe go to’s. seriously, this recipe could not be easier—it’s almost unfair to call it a recipe.
all you need is:
- a good loaf of bread–senza salt if you want to go true tuscan.
- red onion.
- a few cloves of garlic–i like mine uber-garlicky.
- tomatoes–i prefer cherry or grape.
- olive oil & balsamic.
- salt & pepper.
mince equal parts onion and tomato. add chopped garlic. pour in a generous portion of olive oil and balsamic. then add a dash of salt and pepper. if you’re preparing this ahead of time, just let it sit for like a half hour, stirring every few minutes. otherwise, i just pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes and it gets all the flavors going in a flash. toast slices of the bread. and voilá–deliciousness.
tonight, i threw a little bit of fresh mozz on top–the coolness of the cheese is a nice complement to the warmth of the tomatoes. mmmm.
