Bruschetta



I have to thank my friend T. for teaching me how to make this. It has been a favorite for awhile.
It is really flexible, you can make any amount and change the amounts of the ingredients to taste.
Here I used 2 Roma tomatoes; diced, 3 green onions; sliced, about 2 oz of feta; crumbled, 7 slices of French bread and pepper to taste. Normally, I would have used about 4-5 leaves of fresh basil, chopped; but it was after Christmas and the store was completely out.
It is pretty simple, just grill the sliced bread in a pan with olive oil (about 2 tbsp), over medium heat and top with mixture. Sometimes I use grape tomatoes because they are sweet. I believe my friend T. recommended that to me.

I love bruschetta! You're right; it is so versatile; anything goes, from just herbs and olive oil to tapenade to goat cheese and caramelized onions....now I'm hungry:D

I used to order something similar to this from a favorite restaurant in college. I never thought to make it, but now that I have the recipe -- I'll have to try it, looks great!
