"I give this a five star. Easy to do and tastes great! you can make it the day before and put it on the bread just before serving."

"This bruschetta is fantastic. It was good the first day and the next; unfortunately it didn't last longer than that! I served it like a side salad instead of on bread, and it was very good that way. I did substitute yellow onion for the red onion, and used dried parsley instead of fresh because that is what I had on hand. A keeper!"
