Extremely Easy Bruschetta Topping
This side of the forum looked a little lonely, so I figured I'd give you folks something here that is extremely easy, tasty, and a personal favorite snack.
No long list of ingredients here, just these:
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 an equal sized white onion, diced small
a clove of garlic, minced or pushed through a press
kosher salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
extra-virgin olive oil to taste
A)Mix all ingredients together and stash in the 'fridge to cool. This is personal preference because I like the contrast of hot, toasted bread with the cool, light topping. Helps to meld the flavors as well.
B)Get out your favorite baguette, slice on bias, and toast to your desired doneness under a broiler. Some folks at this point rub the hot toast with half a clove of garlic. I find it redundant as there's garlic in the topping, but feel free. Simplicity is better for a snack, in my opinion.
Onsert cool 'slot A' onto a hot 'tab B' and prepare your tummy for some mouth-wateringly tasty treats.
Easy, and genuinely delicious if you can find a fresh farmer's market for the ingredients. Winter ingredients will suffice as well.
Feel free to ask questions or give comments.
