Tomato bruschetta

Side Serves 2 10 min
The absolute requirements for this easy recipe are perfectly ripe, juicy tomatoes and good, crusty bread. Bruschetta makes a tasty canapé or a light summer lunch. If you'd like broader range of flavour, add anchovies, capers or olives for saltiness. Slices of mozzarella are another good addition.
