10 min Bruschetta

This recipe is great for a quick snack or perfect for an appetizer!


  • 5-6 Roma Tomatoes (Also great with Heirloom Tomatoes)

  • 2-3 Cloves of Minced Garlic

  • 1 Tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1-2 Tsp of Balsamic Vinegar

  • 6-8 Fresh Basil Leaves (Can also use Italian Flat Parsley)

  • 1/2 Tsp of Black Pepper

  • Coarse Salt (Adjust To Taste)


This recipe is so easy, it will only take 10 minutes to make!

Start by dicing your tomatoes in small cubes. Take roughly 6-8 fresh basil leaves and stack them on top of each other. Then roll them into a cigar-like shape and cut them into thin strips. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all of your ingredients and you are ready to eat! I like to serve this recipe with grilled Crostini's or a nice focaccia bread.

To grill your crostini, take the bread of your choice (I like a good French baguette or dutch crunch bread) and grill them on a ribbed skillet. Personally, I prefer to do this without any oil so that the bread has light char marks on it. Serve by drizzling olive oil and sea salt over your crostini.
