I love the taste of balsamic vinegar in Bruschetta! In fact I added a little more balsamic, some garlic powder and a bit more salt and it was a big hit with the girls at game night. It was pretty liquid-y so after it sat in the fridge for a couple of hours I drained the liquid and let people put it on the toast themselves so it didn't get soggy. I'm making it again today for a family get together. Thanks for my new favorite Bruschetta recipe!

When I made this, it was a very liquid-y bruschetta. I prefer mine to be less, so I think next time I will just reduce the amount of oil and vinegar slightly. Otherwise, it's great!
