Ciao Bella Bruschetta

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!
