Fresh tomatoes, garlic, feta, tossed with a zesty dressing………Yum. Then, you scoop that onto some toasted, crusty bread and WOW. How could something that simple taste that fabulous. Seriously. How???!!!!!!
There are so many ways to make a bruschetta. I’ve tried many a kind. I have to say, this is my favorite one. How can you go wrong with the combination of fresh, (home-grown) tomatoes and feta cheese? I mean, come onnnnnnnn. So good. If you have never had a Sun Sugar tomato, you’re missing out. Little bites of sweet tomato heaven, that just burst with flavor. I can’t get enough of them. I highly recommend planting some in your garden! You will be so happy.
This is a great appetizer to serve at a party. Or, you could make a few varieties and have them be the meal. They go great with a glass of chilled white wine or champagne! Oh yesssssss.
So easy to put together.
Tomato Feta Bruschetta
1 baguette, cut into 1/4″ slices
approximately 2 cups whole Cherry tomatoes (I used a combo of Cherry and Sun Sugar tomatoes)
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
2 Tblsp red wine vinegar or vinegar **
1/4 cup plus 2 Tblsp olive oil or vegetable oil **
or use a premade Italian salad dressing (1/2 cup)
salt and pepper to taste
fresh basil to garnish (optional)
Cut the fresh tomatoes in quarters. Place them in a bowl with all of the other ingredients and give them a gentle toss. Set aside for at least 10 minutes.
While your tomatoes are bathing, prepare your bread. Heat oven to 425. Place the slices onto a baking sheet. Brush lightly with a bit of olive oil. Place sheet into the oven. Allow bread to toast until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to come to room temp.
Scoop tomato mixture onto your little toasts. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
