Premier Tomato Bruschetta with Olives & Capers

Premier Tomato Bruschetta with Olives & Capers is just a few turns away from a classic bruschetta recipe.  Just as easy and even more delicious in my humble opinion as well!  I love this appetizer because I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand.  It’s fabulous for a small snack, party, or when I have friends turn up and want to make something nice but simple.  I was in Nha Trang, Vietnam over the Xmas holiday and went to a restaurant that served a bruschetta similar to this so I was inspired when I came back to make my own. For New Year’s I was wanting quick & healthy appetizers so I thought this would be the perfect time to create the recipe I had concocted in my mind.  It was amazing!  After a few glasses of champagne I was feeling extra proud of this pretty dish. Crowd pleaser?  For sure!  Done in 15 minutes or less? Indeed!  Prep time 8 minutes? Uh-huh! What’s not to love?!  Next time you have a soiree or some unexpected guests, whip this awesomeness up in no time!

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 lbs very ripe tomatoes - diced (about 4-5 medium round tomatoes or 10-12 plum tomatoes)
  2. 10 basil leaves - sliced thinly (save a bit for garnish)
  3. 1/2 C diced black olives - sliced (or any olive or your choice)
  4. 1/4 C capers
  5. Parmesan cheese (to garnish the breads with)
  6. 3 cloves garlic (2 cloves minced)
  7. 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  8. Olive oil for brushing on breads
  9. Sea salt & cracked pepper to taste
  10. 1 large baguette (or a similar bread of your choosing)
Instructions
  1. Slice baguette approximately 1cm thick (sometimes I like it a bit thicker) and toast
  2. Brush each bread/toast with olive oil and cut in half the whole garlic piece and rub on each piece
  3. In a bowl add & toss tomatoes, capers, olives, balsamic, salt & pepper, and basil
  4. Distribute evenly over all toasts and garnish with a healthy amount of parmesan cheese and basil if you'd like
Notes
  1. You can replace the parmesan cheese with a nice crumbled feta if you would like. Equally as delicious!
