One of my FAVORITE Summer foods is bruschetta. It’s just so fresh and light – perfect for a snack or any entertaining you’re doing. Last weekend, I had some goodies from the Farmers’ Market, so I decided to make some bruschetta for our 4th of July celebrations.
Here’s my recipe:
5 Regular Tomatoes (or 8 Roma Tomatoes) Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic (add more or less depending on how garlic-y you like it) diced
1 5-oz Container of Feta (I like Feta in mine, but you can also do mozzerella)
8-9 Basil Leaves Chopped
1/2 Lemon Squeezed into the Bowl
1 Tblspn Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tblspns Olive Oil
Dash of salt and pepper
Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl and serve over warm bread. I just buy baguettes at the grocery store, cut them into slices, drizzle them with olive oil, and warm them for no more than 3 minutes in a 350 degree oven. If you do any more than that, they’ll get too hard – and no one wants that!
