Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil

Bruschetta with Tomato and BasilThis is such a simple and classic dish. I love bruschetta because it’s so versatile and delicious. You can make it with a number of different toppings but my favorite is tomato, basil, and balsamic on top of a crisp baguette. I like to rub the hot bread with a raw clove of garlic which flavors the bread without making the garlic flavor too potent. I use really good balsamic vinegar for this because it makes the flavors pop. This is my idea of a perfect appetizer.

Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil:


  • 5-6 firm tomatoes, diced very small
  • 5-6 basil leaves, cut into very small ribbons (chiffonade)
  • 1 small shallot, finely diced
  • Drizzle of olive oil, to taste
  • Drizzle of balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 baguette, sliced into thin slices
