The topping for this simple Fresh Tomato Bruschetta appetizer can be put together ahead of time and refrigerated. We also love it on top of grilled chicken sandwiches, hamburgers and homemade pizza. —Samantha Cass, Swartz Creek, Michigan

"Outstanding! Whipped it up at the last minute so served with garlic parmesan bagel chips that were on hand which was excellent, but can only imagine how yummy it would be with the mozzarella and French bread. Will definitely try that next time as well as on grilled chicken, etc. It's a keeper!"

"Very good. Didn't butter bread. Forgot to buy basil, so used pesto and added a little more Parmesan cheese to pesto, then didn't add oil."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2014

"Flavors are excellent. The recipe indicated I could make the topping ahead of time; I was worried refrigerating the tomatoes would affect the texture, but the topping was excellent and I made it several hours in advance. My mistake was broiling the brushetta 15 minutes before my guests arrived - my bread was very soft by the time we ate it. Make sure to broil, then top, just before serving. Also, my husband came home with pre-sliced mozzerella and I think they were a little too thick - the edges of my bread burned before the cheese fully melted. All of this was user error and not the recipe, and I will make again,"
