I recently ran a poll asking people to name their favourite type of food. The overwhelming majority picked Italian. So in honour of those who love Italian, here is a classic bruschetta recipe. It is heart-healthy and makes the perfect start to a feast from Italy.
4 plum tomatoes, seeded & diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp basil, preferably fresh
2 cloves minced garlic
crumbled feta or goats cheese
1 small baguette
Directions: Combine tomatoes, olive oil, basil & garlic in a small bowl. Slice baguette cross-wise to form slices about 1/3" thick. Place 1 tbsp of bruschetta mix onto each slice, and top with crumbled cheese of your choice. Broil on top shelf of oven for about 2-3 minutes, watching very carefully so that it doesn't burn.
