Traditional Bruschetta

  • 4 tablespoons The Smiling Olive Garlic Olive Oil
  • 4 tablespoons The Smiling Olive Butter Olive Oil
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 pint red grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 pint yellow grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 16 whole fresh basil leaves, plus more as needed.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 whole baguette or crusty loaf

Add the red and yellow tomatoes, balsamic and basil to a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Add the Garlic Olive Oil.  Toss to combine, and then taste and add more basil or salt, if needed.  Cover and refrigerate for an hour or two.

Cut the baguette into diagonal slices to allow for the most surface area possible. Brush Butter Olive Oil on both sides of the bread cook until golden brown on both sides.

To serve, give the tomato mixture a final stir, and then spoon generously over the slices of bread, top with mozzarella cheese. Serve on a big platter as a first course or appetizer.
