Just like the other reviewer said, I'm very glad that I tried this version of bruschetta - it was fantastic! I couldn't find any decent cherry toms so I used 2 large regular tomatoes instead. Otherwise I made as written except for cutting down the jalapeno to about 1/4 of what was called for. You could make the tomato topping ahead of time and really whip this up at a party pretty easily. .... enlist helpers to rub the raw garlic on, which I agree is a must...don't skip that step! The amount of topping I made, with just the 2 tomatoes, was the perfect amount for about 1/2 a baguette (12 slices). Everyone was disappointed that I hadn't made more so I may make again tomorrow with the other 1/2 of the baguette. Thanks Rita! Made during ZWT7.
