This recipe has been modified slightly over tim, but is always a winner, whether for an appetizer or main dish. It even works with winter store-bought tomatoes. The vinegar and basil bring out the flavors.

Directions

  1. Combine tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, basil, and garlic; let tomato mixture rest for 15 to 30 minutes.
  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Arrange French bread slices on a large baking sheet; drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil.
  4. Toast bread in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side. Top bread slices with tomato mixture using a slotted spoon, allowing excess liquid to drain. Return bread to baking sheet and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Broil in preheated oven until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Just REALLY good! The next time that I make this, I'll try using white balsamic because you will lose the vibrant red color if it sits too long. White is milder in flavor, but it would be worth it to keep this bruschetta's eye appeal.

I made this for the RECIPE GROUP. I followed the recipe using all the ingredients; but, because I wanted a cold appetizer, I used the mozzarella as a garnish rather than melting it in the oven. I only used the flesh of the tomato not the seeds or juice. When it first got done, I was very disappointed in the taste. I just didn't like the pepper, it was too strong. (Perhaps my fault) After refrigeration of a few hours, it was "knock your socks off" good! All the flavors blended and it was totally delicious! I served the bruschetta separate, as I didn't want the bread to get soggy. I will be using this recipe often, infact I'll be making it again tomorrow. Thank you Joy for sharing!

Yum! I have cherry tomatoes and basil growing out my ears this year. This was a great recipe to use them in. It's an easy recipe to use what's growing in your garden. I have mild banana instead of red bell and white sweet onion instead of purple. Fresh parm instead of mozz. I know I changed a few things, but I still think the simple elegance of the dish shines. Easy and delish!
