Bruschetta 2
From kathy Lauridsen at OSU, Columbus, Ohio

  • chopped fresh tomatoes
  • chopped onions
  • peeled and diced cucumbers
  • lots of fresh chopped basil
  • a loaf of vienna bread
  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
There a million variations on this recipe.
My husband and I made one up.
The trick is to get the bread slices crusty.

Combine the chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, diced cucumbers with a bit of red wine vinegar in a bowl.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and the basil.

Toast the vienna bread in slices which are thick in the toaster first.
Then brush the slices qith a bit of olive oil and broil until nice and crusty.

The tomato mixture can be put on the broiled hot slices as a cold mixture, or you can slightly broil the topped slices again.
Serve as a side dish to any entree.
