Bruschetta with tomatoes and basil

  • While the bread cooks drizzle each slice of bread with a tablespoon of olive oil and top with a large spoonful of chopped tomatoes (or cubed tomatoes), add chopped basil and serve immediately.

PS In the US I have seen Bruschetta done with pieces of garlic on top or powder garlic, please avoid that! Italian food does not need to be butchered this way !
