Classic Bruschetta is an easy favorite of my family's. My father loves to make this and still uses this recipe years after we first started to use it.


  • 8 Roma tomatoes seeded, finely diced
  • 3 Garlic cloves finely chopped and
  • 3 Garlic cloves left whole
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil finely chopped
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 baguette 2 1/2-3 inches in diameter, cut in about 20 slices


  • In a large bowl, add the tomatoes, chopped garlic (keep whole cloves for later), olive oil, vinegar, basil, salt and pepper.
  • Stir the ingredients until well-mixed and let them rest at room temperature while you toast the bread.
  • When slices are cool, rub with whole cloves of garlic.
  • Top with tomato mixture.
