Serves 6

1 tbsp olive oil

Pinch of pepper

12 slices French or Italian bread, lightly toasted

1/4 tsp  sea salt

3 ripe tomatoes, chopped

3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped


1. Combine chopped tomatoes, 3 tablespoons fresh chopped basil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt in a bowl, cover it and marinate for 4 to 5 hours at room temperature.

2. Toast bread slices just before serving and spread tomato basil mixture on top evenly.

3. Sprinkle with pepper and serve right away!

Note: For an alternative option you can add mozzarella cheese to the recipe. You can also drizzle bread with olive oil and fry it a bit over medium heat, instead of using a toaster. Drizzle bruschetta’s with balsamic sauce.
