Balsamic Bruschetta

Friday, April 15

Bruschetta is a traditional Italian appetizer. Although I can’t claim that this recipe to true to it’s Italian roots, I can say that it is delicious and so easy to make. So if you have 15 minutes and want to start an Italian dinner right, or just want a tasty snack you can’t go wrong with this recipe.

The basic recipe only has four ingredients. But feel free to play around with it and spice it up. You can always throw in some garlic, olive oil or even parmesan cheese. I prefer it simple, but it is good no matter how you do it.

4 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup chopped yellow onion

1/8 cup chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

All you really have to do is chop up your ingredients and you are good to go. I find the easiest way to dice the tomatoes is by first quartering them. After that, cut out the seeds, slice and then dice.

Once you have everything diced, throw it in a bowl and add the balsamic vinegar. Toss…and you are done. It really is that easy.

I prefer to let it sit a while so that the flavors blend. An hour in the refrigerator will do the trick. Don’t let it sit too long or you will end up with soup as all the juice from the tomatoes will run out. An hour is good. Add it to some freshly toasted garlic bread and you are good to go. If you want a good bruschetta toast recipe I have one for you.
