Summer = Tomatoes

One of my favorite things about summer is how wonderful the tomatoes are, especially in late summer.  I was pushing it around here yesterday because I really wanted to take Bruschetta to our Memorial Day cookout with friends.  This is a recipe I found several years ago out of a newspaper in Illinois.

Brewery Bruschetta
1 baguette, sliced 1/4 inch thick
6 to 8 large plum tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
3 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan

Place slices of bread in a preheated 350-degree oven until lightly toasted.  Toss together all other ingredients except Parmesan.  Scoop mixture onto bread and garnish with freshly grated cheese. 

I love bruschetta.  I almost always order it when at an Italian restaurant.  It's interesting the different ways it can taste.  Sometimes I order it as my main course.  Try this recipe this summer.  You'll love it!

  2. Mmmmmm! That looks and sounds delicious!
