Simple Bruschetta

Bruschetta is tasty! I made up a batch a few nights ago and put it over some baked salmon and drizzled some balsamic vinegar on it. It's really easy to make, all you need are 5 simple ingredients. The key to good bruchetta is being able to chop things very finely, so get out your best knife!

  • Tomato (1 large)
  • Garlic (1-2 cloves, depending on size)
  • Minced onion (1/2 cup)
  • Dried Basil (1/2 tsp)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (1 tsp)
  1. Cut the tomato into fine slices. If I had to give a measurement to the thickness of each slice, I'd say about 0.5 cm.
  2. Take each tomato slice and cut it into strips, then cut the strips across at a 90 degree angle. Repeat this until you're done. Place diced tomato in a bowl. Check out this link for a similar technique.
  3. Mince the garlic.
  4. Mince the onion.
  5. Combine garlic, onion, tomato and basil in a bowl and toss until it's well mixed.
  6. Add the olive oil and mix well.
If you like your bruschetta a bit stronger, increase the amount of garlic and onion ... but be careful ... the strength of the garlic and onion can get out of hand quickly!
