Tomato Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta

Serves 4
From the Italian "bruscare", meaning "to roast over coals," this garlic bread was traditionally made by rubbing fresh garlic over peasant bread and drizzling it with fruity extra-virgin olive oil. The bread was then baked in a brick wood-fired oven until crisp and golden brown. Here's an updated version you can make at home.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Combine tomatoes, onion, basil, garlic, parsley, oil, vinegars, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place baguette slices on a baking pan in a single layer. Bake slices until just golden, remove them from the oven, flip them, and return to the oven until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Top warm baguette slices with tomato mixture.
