Ciao Bella Bruschetta

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


Every good Italian knows how to make bruschetta! So this is my version.

Bruschetta refers to the bread the tomato salad is served on. But I choose to serve mine with melba rounds, any flavor you like, garlic,sesame,poppy etc. So my version is more like a "dip". Great for a party or even served over grilled chicken.

I hand chop my ingredients because a food processor makes the tomatoes too fine.

Hope you like it! Enjoy!
