Italian Bruschetta

Real Italian bruschetta is a wonderful thing.  The flavors of fresh tomatoes, basil, onion….it all comes together for an amazing taste sensation.  This time of year when the days are getting longer and warmer,  I like to cook with lots of fresh herbs.  It’s also the time when tomatoes are the freshest.  I find  Roma tomatoes are the best for this recipe,  as they are firm and aren’t excessively juicy.  Therefore, the bread stays crisp.

Here is my own tasty version of bruschetta.  It’s light, fresh, and perfect for a summer patio appetizer.   Happy dining…
