This is the perfect recipe for when summer tomatoes and fresh basil and mint are bountiful. It's also great using canned, "petite diced" tomatoes when "store bought tomatoes" aren't great!

How to Make Basil Mint Bruschetta Mozzarella


  1. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients except cheese and bread. Let stand 3 hours at room temperature. (You may use it immediately, but the flavors blend more as time goes by.)

    Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Cut bread as you desire. I like to split the sub rolls lengthwise (instead of in slices) and place them cut side up on a foil lined baking sheet. Spread tomato mixture on bread and top with cheese. Bake in upper half of oven for 5-7 minutes, until cheese melts and bread edges brown. Cut into slices for appetizers.

    I sometimes add black beans, to the mixture just before putting it on the bread for "Black Bean Bruschetta" or I add ham to make it a little heartier.
