Bruschetta with Crostini

Bruschetta is one of those classics that I just LOVE. So simple, yet SO SO flavorful. Everyone makes Bruschetta slightly different, but with the same basic ingredients (Tomato, Onion, Garlic, Basil…). This is the way that I like to make it:

Bruschetta with Crostini

Ingredients:

6-7 Roma Tomatoes (Diced)
12-14 Basil Leaves Finely Chopped
1/4 Red onion Finely Diced (Roughly 2-3 TBS)
2 Cloves Garlic
1 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 TBS Red Wine Vinegar
3 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
Cracked Black Pepper (to taste)
1-2 loaves of a White Crusty Bread (French or other)

Directions:

Mix together (all except the bread) and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. When preparing this for a dinner party, I usually mix this up the morning of and allow it to sit until dinner time. This allows the flavors to get acquainted!

Slice the long loaf of bread into small slices, spray with Pam, and sprinkle with coarse salt. Broil until golden brown (keeping a close eye that it doesn't burn). Turn toasts over and repeat. Remove from oven when both sides have browned.
Serve Bruschetta over the toasted Crostinis.
