Tomato with basil and garlic are a magical combination.  It is my preferred topping for pizza and even pasta. When I told my husband I was doing a tomato week, he was very excited about eating todays post.
He was so excited that he wanted to eat just this for dinner.  
So I obliged, and I had one happy husband.  
We had some left over and it is going to make a great topping for pasta this weekend. 
Tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil on fresh crusty toasted bread.  A perfect fresh appetizer to serve when you have guests; especially on labor day weekend :)

Printable Recipe
Bruschetta- Recipe by me
3 large tomatoes, deseeded and diced
1/2 bulb of garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped basil
1/4 cup good olive oil
1 tsp salt
sliced baguette

Combine tomatoes, garlic basil, salt and olive oil in a container.  Let sit at least 1/2 hour before serving.  Slice baguette, drizzle a little olive oil on top and toast under the broiler.  Every broiler is different so watch the bread very carefully, mine toasted in 7 minutes.
