BruschettaCourse: AppetizersCuisine: ItalianDifficulty: Easy
This quick dish was created in Italy during the 15th century. However, even in ancient Rome, after pressing the olives, they tried freshly pressed olive oil by pouring a slice of bread over it.
6 slices of grilled bread
6 cloves of garlic
6 basil leaves
6 teaspoons of olive oil
- Put the bread on the grill or heat it.
- Rub it with garlic and salt
- Place the chopped tomatoes on top
- Cover with olive oil.
- Serve cold.
- New variations include tomato dressing, with the addition of cheese and prosciutto. Today, in some countries, prepared dressing is also sold with briskets. In Tuscany, it is served without anything and is called Fettyhta, especially when they try the first olive oil of the season during the month of November.
