Bruschetta with tomatoes

For something light and tasty and packed with flavour.

Recipe from: April 2010
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins


  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ripe salad tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sugar
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • fresh basil, chopped
  • ciabatta/baguette, sliced
  • butter
  • oil


The amounts aren't specific. You need to keep tasting the tomatoes until you have the perfect balance between salty, sweet and a little tart-ness from the vinegar.
I also used 3 different tomatoes for added interest and it worked really well.

In a bowl, combine all the tomatoes, vinegar and spices and make sure that the balance between sweet and salty is good.
In a hot pan, melt the butter and add a dash of oil. Fry the bread until golden and crisp, (about 2 mins per side) and serve warm with the tomatoes piled on top.
