This bruschetta is the perfect little finger food for any gathering! Be ready to knock people's socks off!
Bruschetta is not an appetizer I typically think to make. I'm not sure why that is because it is so simple and this recipe in particular is flavorful and delicious. I am a huge lover of anything overflowing with tomatoes, so bruschetta should be at the top of my appetizer list. Moving it up a few notches on the list right this second.
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients, minus the bread.
Cut a loaf of French bread into 1/2-inch slices. Place bread slices onto a baking sheet.
At this point you have two serving options. You can:
1. Toast the French bread with tomato mixture spread on top in a 425-degree oven for 4-5 minutes for a warm appetizer.
2. Toast the bread by itself in a 425-degree oven for 3-4 minutes and then add the chilled tomato mixture to the top.
I tried both ways and I slightly prefer the toasted bread with the chilled tomato mixture on top.
Top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and serve! Delish!
