Banging Bruschetta and Garlic Herb Toast

Featured Video Play Icon

Fresh tomato, garlic, and basil notes scream out loud in this banging bruschetta and garlic herb toast. Bringing you a colorful, tasty and simple appetizer or add on.

According to Tuscan tradition the olive oil is the most important staple because it ties together all of the flavors. Extra virgin olive oil works best.

I’ve had this prepared a night before for company and if you have any extra you can enjoy it with lunch the following day. Along with the simplicity of this recipe it is also quite inexpensive to put together.

This vibrant dish will pop off any plate it’s set on. It’s great to add some whipped cheese spread or thinly sliced mozzarella on top of your toast before topping off with bruschetta for an exciting twist on an Italian classic. Very easily double and triple this recipe for larger groups.
