heirloom bruschetta

Instructions:

1. **Prep the Tomatoes:** In a mixing bowl, combine the diced heirloom tomatoes, minced garlic, and chopped red onion.

2. **Add Flavorings:** To the tomato mixture, add the chopped basil, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Mix gently.

3. **Season:** Season the tomato mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Let it sit for about 15-30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

4. **Toast the Bread:** Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil. Toast in the oven until they are lightly golden and crispy, about 5-10 minutes.

5. **Rub with Garlic:** Once the bread is toasted, rub one side of each slice with the whole garlic clove. This will infuse a subtle garlic flavor into the bread.

6. **Assemble Bruschetta:** Spoon the heirloom tomato mixture generously onto each toasted bread slice. If desired, top with a sprinkle of fresh mozzarella or Parmesan cheese.

7. **Serve:** Serve the bruschetta immediately, garnished with a little more fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil if desired.

Tips:
– Choose ripe, flavorful heirloom tomatoes for the best taste.
– For an added touch, you can grill the bread slices on a grill pan for a smoky flavor.
– This appetizer pairs wonderfully with a crisp white wine or a light red wine.

Enjoy your heirloom tomato bruschetta, a perfect start to any meal or a delightful snack on its own!
