kicked up bruschetta

i love bruschetta, it's probably one of my favorite snacks to have whether it's at a restaurant or at home. i pretty much love any way it's been made but i especially love the extra kick of adding in balsamic vinegar..mmm. with the weather staying unseasonably warm, i have been wanting to have bruschetta with a glass of vino practically everyday. i have a feeling T is eventually going to put his foot down and say NO MORE! until then, here's a little tutorial on how i make my own bruschetta. hope you love it as much as i do!

here's what you'll need:

2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 package grape tomatoes, diced
1 package of yellow grape tomatoes, diced
10-16 leaves of fresh basil, chopped
extra virgin olive oil
balsamic vinegar
mozarella, diced in to cubes (size depends on how big or small you like)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 baguette, sliced (toasted in your oven or stove top briefly)

[sauté over medium-high heat chopped garlic in evoo for 2 mins or until golden, then remove from heat]

[in a mixing bowl, add your diced tomatoes and basil together]

[now add diced mozzarella and garlic to mixture, with salt, pepper and olive oil to taste]

[dizzle balsamic vinegar over mixture until flavor is to your liking and stir well]

[serve over toasted baguette and enjoy]


  1. You could try adding a little purple onion for an added bite.

  2. ooo! sounds yummy, i think i will try that next time!
