Its harvest time and I made this Bruschetta from the paste tomatoes, garlic and basil from our garden. It was delicious on a piece of olive oil infused toast, what could be tastier!

Ingredients

10
plum tomatoes, diced
4 small
cloves garlic,pressed
3/4 c
fresh basil leaves
1 tsp
fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/3 c
olive oil, extra virgin
coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
french or italian bread, sliced
balsamic vinegar, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl mix the tomatoes, garlic, basil leaves, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside.
2
Slice your bread into 1 inch slices. If you have a large loaf of bread you might want to slice the pieces in half again.
3
Brush one side of each slice of bread with extra virgin olive oil. Put the slices oiled side down on a cookie sheet and toast them until golden.
4
You can make the bread ahead of time and store it in an airtight container. Cool the bread completely before you store it.
5
You can let everyone top their toast with the tomato mixture. Don't top the toast too soon before eating, it will get soggy.

Enjoy!
