I love fresh Bruschetta! I love this recipe because it has balsamic vinegar in it and I’m a huge fan of balsamic vinegar. I love the powerful punch of flavor it adds and it always pairs well with tomatoes, onion, and basil (in my humble opinion). This Bruschetta is easy to throw together and can be used as a simple appetizer (I love to pair it with baked pita chips). I’ve also paired it with part-skim mozzarella cheese which makes it a well-balanced snack. Enjoy!
