Tomato basil bruschetta screams summer. Who doesn’t love the summer? The warm weather, fresh produce, and not to mention the great tans! My favorite part of summer is all the produce – watermelon, strawberries, and can’t forget the excess of tomatoes. There are so many types and so readily available in the summer. We ended up with a big box of fresh tomatoes and I don’t believe in waste, so we’ve been scrambling to find great uses for these delicious fresh tomatoes.
I started with caprese pasta, several Indian dishes, and then remembered bruschetta is a great tomato rich dish. On the plus side, I had everything at home needed to make this tomato basil bruschetta dish. It’s comprised of tomato, basil, and some seasoning. It’s delicious, easy to put together, and can stay good in the fridge for a few days. I am really excited to share with you this delicious tomato basil recipe being we devour the heck out of it when I make it. The recipe is adapted from simply recipes blog.
