Bruschetta, pronounced as [brus'ket.ta], is an Italian snack or appetizer.It consists of grilled Italian bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper, tomato, vegetables and/or cheese.
I created my own version of Bruschetta.
extra virgin olive oil
1tsp Italian seasoning (consists of marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano and basil)
Salt and pepper
For the topping
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped lettuce
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped mint
3-4 tbsp Mayonnaise
Cut the bread as shown in the picture.
Place a grill pan over medium-high heat.Drizzle the bread slices with olive oil. Grill the bread until golden on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.Sprinkle the bread slices with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
For the topping:
In a medium bowl combine all the given ingredients and gently stir.
To serve, spoon the topping on the bread and serve or place the topping in a bowl and serve with the grilled bread alongside.
