This is the first post that I have made so far that the photo wasn't taken on my kitchen table!
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend a potluck dinner with some friends from my Chalice Circle at church to commemorate the year we spent together coming to an end. We decided on an Italian theme and Bruschetta just called out to me.
I wound up finding the most wonderful heirloom tomatoes and it was a big hit!
1/8 cup olive oil + more for bread
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
3 garlic cloves minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
4 medium heirloom tomatoes diced small
1 loaf of french bread
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Slice the french bread in thin slices and lightly coat in olive oil. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat in oven for 8 minutes or until bread is lightly toasted and crispy.
2. Dice tomatoes, mince garlic, and chop basil. Add ingredients to a medium sized bowl and allow to ingredients to chill for at least 30 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and parmesan if that is your preference.
3. Once bread has cooled and mixture has chilled slightly, spoon tomatoes onto bread and serve.
