Recipe: Bruschetta

Summer is a great time to enjoy tomatoes. This Bruschetta recipe is perfect for your next dinner party. Enjoy!

1 Baguette
4 cloves Garlic, 3 minced, 1 cut in half
1/4 of a small red Onion, chopped
4-5 Roma Tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped 
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
6-8 big leaves fresh Basil, chopped

Combine the minced garlic, chopped tomatoes, red onion and basil in a medium bowl. Add olive oil and vinegar and stir it all together. Add two large pinches of salt, and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

Slice the baguette into thin rounds and toast under the broiler. Once the slices are toasted, rub each slice with the clove of garlic. Top with the tomato mix right before serving. When you’re spooning the tomatoes out of the bowl, tilt your spoon and let the liquid drain out. Arrange nicely on a place and serve.
