Double Tomato Bruschetta

Whenever I go out to restaurants, I always want to order a big plate full of bruschetta for an appetizer. I don’t know why it has never occurred to me to make a batch of brushetta to eat at home, but when I noticed the tomatoes were on sale at my local supermarket, I just knew that I had to make some of this for myself.

This bruschetta is a double tomato bruschetta which combines the super sweet and chewy flavors of the sun-dried tomatoes with the deliciousĀ juicinessĀ of the Roma tomatoes. The flavors together are phenomenal and are mixed with just a little balsamic vinegar,olive oil, garlic, and a little fresh garlic.

This appetizer can be prepared a few hours in advance, allowing the flavors to marinate together and break down the tomatoes a bit, or you can prepare it and eat it within ten minutes of preparation.

I have a feeling that this quick and easy appetizer will be my new go-to dish for summer potlucks and barbecues. I also have a feeling that once you make this bruschetta, it will be your go-to dish too.
