I’m really yearning for summer over here. Can you tell? Nothing says summer to me like tomatoes, because that’s when they taste so juicy sweet I can eat them like an apple with a little salt. I didn’t go that far, but I was craving some fresh bruschetta. I whipped up this easy balsamic bruschetta in no time.
It’s great as a party appetizer, obviously, but I highly suggest eating this with a bunch of other finger foods for a fun and different take on dinner! We had our baguette toasts with bruschetta, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, and stuffed olives, for a fun finger food meal. Pick up a fresh baguette on your way home from work and you’ll have dinner on the table in 10 minutes. That’s what I’m talking about!
5-6 plum tomatoes, diced
5-6 leaves fresh basil, chopped
1 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
1 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for brushing
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp salt
fresh baguette, sliced, for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Toast in the oven until lightly golden and crispy, about 7-8 minutes. Meanwhile, place all the other ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss. Serve bruschetta on the toasts.
