Bruschetta with Feta

Pin It Now!

Bruschetta, pronounced brus'ketta, is traditionally  a very simple recipe of just grilled bread rubbed with garlic and olive oil.  Most bruschetta as we Americans know it includes a tomato/garlic/basil topping or some variation thereof.  Here is my version of the yummy appetizer.

  • 7 or 8 plum tomatoes or 3-4 large hot house tomatoes, sliced into quarter pieces

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped.

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Mediterranean flavored feta cheese

  • Loaf of french, ciabatta or italian bread

  • Directions

    1. In a bowl, toss together the tomatoes, basil, and garlic. Mix in the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper. Spoon mixture onto toasted bread slices.

    2. Sprinkle with feta cheese.
