Summer isn’t Complete Without the Best Bruschetta Recipe
I am pretty sure that I have created the best bruschetta recipe! My easy Tomato Bruschetta recipe from my trim&TERRIFIC Eating Well Through Cancer cookbook hits the spot with the season’s ripest tomatoes, basil and Kalamata olives. Fresh basil recipes are the best! This pick-up just cannot be beat, especially with home-grown tomatoes and fresh basil – and even I can grow basil! However, I make my bruschetta with tomatoes year round because you can always get these fresh ingredients. Another healthy easy recipe I love with fresh tomatoes is my Fiesta Salsa.
Easy Tomato Bruschetta Recipe is My Go-to Summer Tomato Appetizer
Every summer get-together needs an appetizer to appease hungry guests, and in my family, summer wouldn’t be complete without my Tomato Bruschetta recipe. Although this best bruschetta recipe has been around for years, no one gets tired of it! This fresh classic is a cinch to throw together – just chop, toss and spoon it on crusty bread. It is also easily doubled or tripled so you won’t have to stress about feeding a crowd. Those bright red tomatoes get their color from lycopene, the powerhouse antioxidant proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers.
Fresh Basil Recipes Make Best Appetizers
Labor day is around the corner and it is the perfect excuse to gather loved ones, throw a few steaks on the grill and enjoy a lazy afternoon of food, fun and family. Toast the bread and have this easy Tomato Bruschetta recipe already whipped up ahead of time. Pull out the fridge and ready to pop onto crusty bread or take a short cut and use toasted rounds, and you are sure to be the hostess with the most-est! Need a menu?
