I make bruschetta often, especially with the fresh basil on my patio! I find a tip to follow is to scoop out the insides of the tomatoes(save to add to spag sauce) and turn the tomatoes upside down on paper towel on a cooling rack. Then dice and continue with the other ingredients. I also since the contents sit and marinate, is to place the whole mixture into a colander quickly and get the access off. Again keep that liquid remain to add to your spag sauce! Hope this helps.

Delicious recipe, will definitely make again! It did get watery at the bottom overnight though.

This was okay but it had to much bite for me- so I added about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and a few tablespoons of feta cheese crumbles and let it rest. We loved it! Next time will lighten the olive oil amount and doubt I would miss it.

Super yummy bruschetta. The only change I made to this recipe was the addition of fresh sliced green onions. I had a bumper crop of them and this was another way of using them.

Absolutely yummy and so easy too! I brush the sliced baguette lightly with olive oil before toasting for a little more flavor and crispness. This is a favorite recipe that is always a hit whenever I make it for family and friends.

Very good - I used cilantro instead of basil and added a little chopped onion and a splash of white wine vinegar.

This bruschetta is fantastic!!!!!! I used fresh tomatoes and didn't seed them and it turned out quite liquidy but we ate it all regardless, everyone who tried it also loved it and I will absolutely make it again and again.
