Bruschetta is a simple but superb Italian appetizer of thick slices of toasted bread spread with a garden-fresh topping of ripe red tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil. It’s a wonderful accompaniment to the chowder in both flavor and color.
1. In medium bowl, gently mix tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
2. To serve, cut grilled bread slices in half. Set slices on serving plates and spoon tomato mixture over them.
