Tomato & Basil Bruschetta

If you’re looking for an easy, healthy and delicious snack this season, then look no further. Tomato & Basil Bruschetta is a famous Italian appetizer made from very simple and fresh ingredients. It is often made using tomatoes, Garlic and Basil, and finished with a little olive oil and vinegar. I skip the vinegar since I have a very sensitive throat and don’t want to risk falling ill at this time.
