Mimi’s Bruschetta

Mimi’s Bruschetta
My grandmother always made the world’s best bruschetta. Watching the love she put into making such simple dishes from her childhood was such an honor. This food literally drew our family together, bringing her rich French and Italian culture to our dining table. Now I’m able to share this rustic, flavorful, simple hors d’oeuvre with those I love, and you can too!


2 garlic cloves, smashed and then diced finely
3/4 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large vine ripe tomatoes, diced into bite sized pieces
1 tablespoon basil, minced
Hefty pinch of coarse salt
1/2 fresh French baguette, cut into 1/2 inch pieces on a diaganol


  • In a bowl whisk together the vinegar and olive oil. Add the garlic, diced tomatoes, basil and salt.
  • Cover bowl and place in fridge or leave on the countertop for a minimum of 30 minutes for the flavors to marinate.
  • Before you’re about to serve: place baguette slices on a baking sheet and broil for a minute, watching closely to ensure the tops become golden but do not burn.
  • Spoon tomato mix over each toasted baguette slice, drizzling a little of the sauce from the bottom of the bowl over top each baguette. Serve immediately.
