Bruschetta! Tue, 02/21/06 2:44 PM (permalink)
One of the easiest, tastiest sides you can possibly make, and it's really quick. If anyone else has suggestions, i'd love to hear them!

this is how i usually do it:
Slice some fresh, soft mozzarella, then cut some roma tomatoes into pretty thin slices & chop them in half. Then get some fresh basil leaves and cut them into thin strips. Get some newman's own balsamic vinaigrette (i swear it sounds ghetto but it's really good). Then I lightly toast the bread on a cookie sheet or toaster oven or whatever I have handy that's not an oven rack, put a mozz slice and a tomato slice on, with a few strips of basil. Then sprinkle a bit of the vinaigrette. Then i eat so many I'm too full to eat whatever comes next.

Other suggestions/variations?

    Costco has the most wonderful Bruschetta topping. It's in the refrigerated section nect to the fresh pasta and cheese and it is incredible. Fresh chopped tomatoes, basil, olive oil and a touch of vinegar. I just spoon it on toast slices of baguette and sprinkle on a little grated parm. It's really out of this world and nobody would know it's pre-made

      In addition to the tomato, basil, olive oil and balsamic vingegar, I like to add chopped moroccan cured olived and capers to my brushetta and I rub the bread with fresh garlic.
