Bruschetta is an Italian starter dish consisting of grilled garlic bread most commonly topped with a tomato and garlic mixture. It is always one of my favorite appetizers that I order out at restaurants and that I make at home for small gatherings. It is quick and easy, and people really seem to enjoy it. Lately however, I have been enjoying Bruschetta as a side salad with steaks, chicken, fish or even in a wrap or pita with some protein. It is very quick and easy to prepare and gives you a pop of freshness and acidity.
Tomatoes, chopped 3 cups (3–4 tomatoes)
Or Cherry Tomatoes, quartered 3 cups
Garlic, chopped fine 3–4 cloves
Red onion, chopped fine 1/4 cup
Fresh basil, chopped 6 leaves
Baby Arugula 2 cups (optional)
Kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon
Black pepper pinch
Red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon
Avocado Oil 2 tablespoons
