I worked in a family-owned Italian restaurant in high school and this was one of my favorites!
- 1 loaf Italian bread, sliced into 1/2 inch thick slices
- 4 large tomatoes, diced
- 3 large onions, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 4 tablespoons sweet italian fresh basil, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Spread sliced bread onto aluminum baking pan, drizzle with olive oil.
- Toast bread 10-20 minutes, turning once.
- In medium bowl, combine diced tomatoes, onions, sugar, and garlic and stir well. Add sweet basil, and red wine vinegar. Stir well. Add approximately 1 tablespoon olive oil, stir well.
- When bread comes out of oven, top bread slices with approximately 2 tablespoons of tomato/onion mixture.
- I have seen fresh mozzerella slices used below the brushetta topping, which is very pretty and probably delicious!
