Yummy Bruschetta that goes with just about any meal. Zo threw this delicious side together for my birthday picnic at Tahoe. I toasted the bread on the grill and boy was this great as we enjoyed the sound of the lake and the beautiful summer day with two of our friends. This side really does go well with just about any meal. Also due to the bread being warm and toasted but the topping chilled it is good for any season!

Ingredients:
Topping
12-14 campari tomatoes (chopped)
12-14 basil leaves (diced)
6 garlic cloves (minced)
1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
Coarse sea salt (to taste)

Bread
2 Italian or French bread loafs
2 tbsp Olive oil
5 cloves garlic (crushed and cracked open)
Parmesan shavings (to taste)

Topping
Mix ingredients together, cover and chill until ready to use.

Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut bread loaf into 1/2 inch slices. Mix together crushed garlic and olive oil. Brush olive oil unto one side of each bread slice. Place bread slices on a cookie or baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes at 375 degrees or until toasting.

Remove toasted bread from oven and top with bruschetta topping, sprinkle fresh Parmesan shavings over the top and serve immediately.
