Bruschetta is one of those simple, clean dishes that anyone can make and easily make it their own. With 5 simple ingredients, this is a perfect lunch, dinner or appetizer. I love to eat this refreshing concoction atop a garlic rubbed, olive oil slathered crostini!
Here is one of my favorite summer recipes for Bruschetta which takes advantage of all those local and seasonal ingredients.
When you go to the farmer’s market, pick up tomatoes, red onion, garlic, fresh basil, and a loaf of ciabatta bread. This is such an amazing way to enjoy locally grown food.
