Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil
submitted by Sarah Koopersmith

I made this recipe in Singapore, and it was delicious! My dinner guests were eating the toppings with their fingers straight from the bowl! I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, and added my own personalized amounts of each ingredient. Play with it and see what tastes best to you!

• 6 or 7 ripe plum tomatoes, diced
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1/4 small red onion, chopped
• 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• olive oil spray
• 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
• Kosher salt
• Freshly ground black pepper to taste
• 1 whole wheat baguette or French bread
• 1-2 garlic cloves, peeled

Combine tomatoes, chopped garlic, red onion, vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, and basil. Set aside.

Slice bread into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place on a tray and spray lightly with olive oil. Toast bread under broiler, until golden, watching closely not to let it burn. When bread is toasted, rub each piece with whole garlic clove.

Place bread on a platter and top with tomato mixture.

Serve immediately or the bread will become soggy.

Makes approximately 26 small slices.
