Spring is here and it's time to say hello to fresh flavors and at Great Harvest in Kirkwood, we can't think of a better treat for the soaring temperatures that bruschetta. This dish comes originally from Italy and it's the perfect way to start a great meal. The best part? You only need a few ingredients to prepare mouthwatering bruschetta. For this reason, we prepared the following post containing a recipe to prepare this delight.


Extra virgin olive oil
4 ripe plum tomatoes
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
6 slices stale bread
1 cup finely chopped fresh basil

Getting ready

Wash the tomatoes and basil and let them dry, in the meantime cut your bread in thick slices and toast them. Now, dice your tomatoes and chop your basil finely- use a large bowl to bring these ingredients together and finish with salt and pepper to taste and a about a tablespoon olive oil.


Once your toast is ready pour a drizzle olive oil on them, and remember that you can add a layer of cheese to your bread to make your bruschetta even more delicious. Now top your bread with the tomato mixture and serve immediately to preventing the bred from becoming soggy.

Bruschetta blends the freshness of it's ingredients to create a perfect combination that makes the perfect appetizer. Keep in mind that you can also be creative and add savory ingredients to prepare other variations.
