Let’s talk about bruschetta!
Bruschetta is a simple Italian appetizer that is toasted bread, rubbed with garlic and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. The bread can be toasted in either the oven or on the grill.
Traditionally, it’s this toasty bread (with the garlic and EVOO) is topped with fresh tomatoes (if they’re in season) and a pinch of salt. Since the bread is toasted/grilled, it holds up to the juiciness of the fresh tomato.
This classic Italian recipe hails from Tuscany, though bruschetta is made all over Italy with fresh, seasonal ingredients! (Want to learn more? I loved reading about bruschetta from La Cucina Italiana.)
Now, obviously, this bruschetta recipe strays from the classic, but I hope that the celebration of a seasonal ingredient on a delicious slice of bread speaks to you and your tastebuds.
