Fresh Bruschetta

6 Sep

Ingredients: Tomatoes, sweet onion, garlic, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, pepper, and honey.

You can adjust the amounts for each ingredient depending on how much you want to make. We usually make a BIG bowl of it and eat it over several days. It just gets better!

In a mixing bowl, chop four to six whole tomatoes into different size chunks. Then add about half a cup of chopped Walla Walla sweet onion, four cloves of chopped garlic, and a big handful of fresh chopped Italian basil. Drizzle a few tablespoons of olive oil and about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar into the bowl. Sprinkle sea salt, fresh ground peppercorns, and a small amount of honey to taste.

This can be eaten with just about anything. On crackers, with a baguette, over meat, on top of pizza, or with grilled sandwiches.

Experiment: Try different varieties of colorful seasonal tomatoes—Cherry, pear, heirloom… The more the merrier! Add other Italian herbs for different flavors—Fresh oregano, thyme, Italian parsley… Stir in roasted red pepper, or maybe even add fresh mozzarella chunks.
