Rustic Bruschetta

Rustic Bruschetta
Makes 8 servings
  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Pompeian Golden Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon Pompeian OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend
  • 1/2 loaf Italian bread, cut diagonally into 3/4-inch slices (about 16 slices)
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Heat 1 tablespoon Pompeian OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic to skillet and cook 1 minute, stirring often.

Add tomatoes, basil, Pompeian Golden Balsamic Vinegar and Parmesan to skillet. Stir together until well blended and warmed through, about 3 minutes. Transfer tomato mixture to a bowl and wipe out skillet.

Working in batches, heat 2 tablespoons of the remaining Pompeian OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend at a time in large skillet over medium heat. Add four bread slices to pan and flip immediately so both sides are coated with oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining oil and bread slices, reducing heat to medium-low if pan gets too hot.

Top bread slices with tomato mixture and serve immediately.
