Tomato Basil Bruschetta

8 ripe plum tomatoes
1 clove garlic
1 tbs. olive oil
1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
8 basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Seed and chop tomatoes into small pieces. Plum tomatoes work best because they have fewer seeds and juice. Crush garlic in a garlic press or mince and add to tomatoes and stir. Remove stems from basil and chop. Add to tomatoes. Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir and let sit for about 15 minutes to let the flavor develop. Serve on slices of toasted baguette.


  1. Oh yum! I think I need to add basil to my garden list of "must haves"!
