Bruschetta is so easy to make. And it's healthy. The recipe I'm posting is exactly how I like my bruschetta. You can add or subtract ingredients depending on what you like.

Printable Recipe


3 medium sized plum tomatoes - diced
2 small garlic cloves - crushed
5-7 fresh basil leaves - chopped
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Italian bread


1. Mix tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar in a bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving.

2. Slice bread into equal 1/2 inch thick slices. Toast on a baking sheet in a 400 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool before topping with the tomato mixture. Serve and enjoy!

This is such a great snack. Easy to make and healthy!

Note: This is an old post that got a bit of a makeover. I made some bruschetta for guests this past weekend and took a better picture than what I had previously posted. I also created a printable recipe link so I figured I'd post it again. Enjoy!


  1. I am making it now with a tomato from my tomato plant! Mmm! Thanks!

  2. Fresh tomatoes from home...that's awesome! Those are always the best. I made this bruschetta twice this weekend. I can't get enough! :D

  3. I won't have tomatoes of my own until July, but I do love bruschetta!
