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!

1/4 c
extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c
tightly packed minced fresh basil
1 1/2 Tbsp
finely chopped mint
1 clove
minced garlic

freshly ground pepper to taste
1 1/2 c

How to Make Basil Mint Bruschetta Mozzarella

Step-by-Step

  • 1In 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.
