I made my fave summer dish tonight for dinner, and was reminded just how much I love it. I first made bruschetta a few years back for a family pot luck, and was hooked. Funny thing is, I'm not a huge tomato fan, unless they're cooked in an italian sauce. But for bruschetta, I'll make an exception.
There are probably as many variations of bruschetta as there are cooks, but here's my personal favorite:
*fresh tomatoes, chopped (I used three)
*handful of basil leaves, chopped (no, you can't use dried. Sorry.)
Mix together and put in fridge.
Slice fresh mozzarella; cut deli slices of ham in half.
Take one loaf pain francais or Italian bread. Slice in rounds. Brush with olive oil and broil in oven until golden brown.
Then pile ham, cheese, and tomato mix on the toasted bread. Eat. Enjoy.
Seriously. Give it a try. I bet you'll be hooked, too.
So what's your favorite summer dish?
