Classic Tomato Bruschetta
fresh basil leaves
sliced into thin strips
baguette or ciabatta loaf
Preheat the oven to broil
Slice the baguette into diagonal pieces, about 1/2" wide and brush with the olive oil.
Broil for 60-90 seconds or until the bread is a deep, golden brown. Watch closely and rotate the pan to get even browning, if needed.
To prepare the tomatoes, cut them in half, gently squeeze some of the juice out, and use your thumb to pull out all of the seeds. Chop small.
Place tomatoes in a mixing bowl and add basil, garlic, vinegar and seasoning. Stir well to combine.
Taste and adjust for seasoning. If it tastes acidic, you can add a pinch of sugar to balance it out.
Spread tomato mixture on baguette, sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan and extra basil if desired, and enjoy!
For extra flavor, let tomato mixture marinate at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving.
