1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
8-10 slices French or Italian bread
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic
In a large bowl, combine diced tomatoes, basil, 1 clove garlic and onion. Drizzle in olive oil and vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine all ingredients. Use immediately or let marinate in a refrigerator overnight for a more intense flavor.
Rub each side of each piece of bread with 1 garlic clove (using the same clove for all of the bread). Brush each slice of bread with the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and broil on low for 3 minutes, flip each slice over and continue broiling for 3-5 minutes or until the bread is lightly toasted. Top with bruschetta mix and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
