When summer time is in full swing and the tomatoes hang gloriously ripened on their strong green vines, nothing is more pleasing to the palette than a simple and refreshing dish. This one makes use of those little red beauties, as well as the intoxicatingly sweet herb, basil.

Companion plants by nature, it is no wonder the two pair so deliciously in the kitchen. I often make this bruschetta as a light lunch for one, but it could easily be doubled for a couple or for an appetizer. Make and delight in its seasonally fresh flavors.
