Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers, because it is not only easy to make and presents well but is delicious. We must have made tons of the stuff when my daughter had her catering business.

    NOTE: For this recipe, it is necessary to use all fresh produce!!! Cut tomatoes into halves Peel and cut garlic cloves in half Peel and cut onion into quarters Remove stems from basil (use only leaves) Place all these items in food processor and lightly pulse until just coarsely chunky (DO NOT OVERPROCESS) Use slotted spoon to transfer to mixing bowl with oil/vinegar mixture and toss gently until veggies are well coated Reason for using slotted spoon is so your mixture won't be too juicy Set aside
