Tomato and Basil Bruschetta

This is a pretty classic tomato bruschetta recipe. What's great about bruschetta is that you can add pretty much anything you want. You could easily add feta cheese or mozzarella to this recipe if you wanted. I also like to spread a little ricotta cheese on my toast point and then add the tomato topping. Nothing is exact with this recips either. Use however much of the ingredients look good to you.

Plum tomatoes or vine-ripened tomatoes, seeded and chopped
garlic, chopped
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
basil leaves, chopped or julliened

Add the chopped tomatoes and garlic to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Add the basil and stir to combine once again. Serve on sliced Italian bread that has been toasted in the oven.
