Bruschetta with Mozzarella, Tomatoes and Basil

Bruschetta with Mozzarella, Tomatoes, and Basil

Sometimes the simpler the better.  Like these bruschetta that I made for us for lunch this past week.

Only a few ingredients:  toasted bread, mozzarella, tomatoes, salt, basil and olive oil.  

For an even more traditional bruschetta, the toasted bread would be rubbed with garlic, too.  

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy and various toppings are used -- like beans, vegetables, cured meats and cheeses, but the most popular version outside of Italy is the mozzarella, tomato, basil version, per Wikipedia.  

In Italy they say BRROO-SKATE-TA.
