Summertime Bruschetta with Tomato & Basil is an easy appetizer to make, especially during tomato season! That’s when the very tastiest, red ripe tomatoes are available in stores, gardens and farmer’s markets. It’s not to say you can’t enjoy winter tomatoes, but it’s just not the same.

This is ridiculously easy to whip up together, the hardest part is chopping the tomatoes. Some people like to oil the sliced baguettes before grilling them, but I prefer to generously drizzle the Extra Virgin Olive Oil after they are grilled. I find it’s quicker and easier, and I think raw Olive Oil is healthier and tastes better than baked oil.

Summertime Bruschetta with Tomato & Basil is summer’s best appetizer! Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!

  1. Yes, these may be simple but they — and others like them — are the reason I grow tomatoes every year. You can’t go wrong using a freshly picked tomato on bruschetta, in a salad, salsa, or any number of ways.

    • I agree! Nothing complements food like garden fresh picked! Can’t compare the flavours of home grown vs store bought! 👍 Thanks for checking it out!
