Last evening, we finally had a ripe fresh tomato. I look forward to tomato season, except this year we may not get many because of the drought. This recipe was wonderful and was gone before I ahd more than 1 piece. My husban loved this!!
1 1/2 lbs. Roma tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh basil
1 T. fresh oregano leaves
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. balsamic
1 T. olive oil
1 t. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to
1/2 inch crusty French bread slices
Garlic flavored olive
For tomato spread, seed and chop tomatoes; chop the basil and
oregano. Mix with garlic, vinegar, and 1 T. olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl.
Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into a serving bowl. For Bruschetta: brush
bread with garlic flavored olive oil. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes or until toasted.
Serve with tomato mixture. Note: the bread can be toasted ahead of time and the
tomato mixture prepared and allowed to stand at room temperature for 2 hours. Do
not spread ahead of time. This is best in the summer using fresh tomatoes and
herbs from the garden. Pin It
