Summertime Snack: Bruschetta

Over the weekend I made this great and super easy bruschetta recipe. It's the perfect light snack for summer!

3 or 4 ripe plum tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
5 to 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
Salt to taste
Parmesan cheese to taste
1 French baguette (I also like it with ciabatta rolls.)

Chop tomatoes into bite sized pieces.

Mix tomatoes with minced garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt.

Chop basil and add to tomatoes. (I like to do this last, I think the flavor melds better.)

Stir and add in a dash of olive oil or balsamic vinegar to taste if needed.

Spoon onto bread, add some cheese and enjoy!
