Refreshing Tomato Bruschetta

“This recipe’s best with sun-warmed tomatoes and basil fresh from the garden,” says Greta Igl of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. “My husband and I love this so much, we can make a meal of it alone!”

    I made this recipe to be an appetizer for a romantic dinner with my boyfriend. It went wonderful with Chicken Alfredo, he told me he couldn't wait to have it again!

    I make this all the time and it is utterly delicious. We grow plum tomatoes in the summer specifically for this. It's a delicious little nosh while waiting for supper. A tiny pinch of sugar makes the tomatoes pop.
