2+c. fresh garden tomatoes diced and drained of the goop 2t. really good olive oil 2t. really good balsamic vinegar 1t. kosher salt plus more if needed 1T. garlic minced 2-3T. basil chiffonade cracked pepper good bread sliced thin and toasted in the oven right before serving. mix in a bowl and let macerate on the counter for some time (couple hours). Pour onto toasts right before serving. The liquid will make the thin bread soggy pretty quick but I do like some of the liquid on there yet it must be eaten immediately. Eat with a meal and you should be safe as long as you don't have a specific problem with tomatoes. I had it with dinner last night and was fine but had it solo for lunch and felt sick, then I had it with dinner tonight and was not bothered by it.
BTW it is a little pet peeve of mine when people say bru'sh'etta, it is 'ske' bru'sch'etta like in SCHool. sorry.
