    This was pretty good. I added some salt and sugar to the tomato/onion/herb mixture, but thought it just needed a touch of something else, as my tomatoes were just grocery store variety, not garden fresh and sun ripened. I drizzled a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar over my slice (just a few drops) and that really brought the flavors out for me. I'd definitely make again when my backyard tomatoes ripen.

    So good...using the first batch of vine-ripened tomatoes I have bought this year and fresh basil and oregano from my little pots on the balcony. I could tell this was going to be more onion than my family would want and so I cut it down to 1 cup, which was perfect, imo. Thanks for a yummy, healthy recipe.

    Outstanding Bruschetta! Bruschetta is one of my favourite Italian dishes, I made this as an entree for dinner tonight and the flavours were yummy. Thank you Scarlett516 - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*

    I omitted the onions (DH's preference). Instead of parmesan, I used mozzarella cheese, grated. It was delicious. Yummy! I'll do it again soon. Thanks Scarlett. Made for the Babes of ZWT4


I joined Recipezaar to learn new recipes that are home cooked. I grew up having ready-meals like Encor and Stouffers and needed recipes that don't simply require opening a box and plopping in the oven! I enjoy cooking when I have the time to try new dishes. I make every recipe as written if I'm reviewing it to give a true review. If I make alterations that aren't in the directions, I don't feel it's a true reflection of the recipe; it's another recipe to me. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" width=75%> (Zaar World Tour 4) <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> (Australia/New Zealand Swap #15)
