Ripe summer tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, and grilled bread rubbed with garlic make one of the most famous Italian appetizers: bruschetta. You can top the grilled bread with almost anything but Bruschetta with tomato and basil is a classic summer dish.
Along with crostini, bruschetta originated in medieval times when it was typical for Italian peasants to eat their meals on slices of bread instead of plates.
If you are having a party, here are different types of bruschetta you may want to try:
