a fun and totally morish party dish! my mum and i found a similar recipe but wanted jazz it up a bit so here it is.


  • 8 - 10 tomatos ripe if possible

  • 1 medium red onion

  • 1 bunch basil

  • 1 generous pinch salt

  • 1 pinch pepper or 2 or 3 grinds

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 cup olive oil or grapeseed oil

  • for bread

  • 1 turkish pide loaf

  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic - store bought is best - juicier

  • 1 cup olive oil or grapeseed oil


  • 1.

    With the tomatos, cut into quarters and de-seed them by running your knife inside the edge of the tomato taking out the seeds and leaving the flesh. Once this is done discard the seeds - you don't need them. then finely chop the tomato cheeks into small squares and put into a bowl. finely chop the red onion - you do not want huge chunks of onion in this - and put into the same bowl as the tomatos. finely slice about 1 handfull of the basil and again put into the bowl with the other ingredients. add the salt, pepper, oil and balsamic vinegar and give a good mix. taste the mix and if it needs more tang add some more balsamic vinegar. just do not add too much as you don't want the mix too wet. put in the fridge and let it sit for an hour or untill you have done the bread.

  • 2.

    For the bread simply in a bowl or jar put the oil and garlic together and mix well so the oil picks up the garlic flavour. slice the turkish pide on an angle and brush the oil mixture on both sides of it. in a sandwich press or george forman grill put the slice of bread in and grill until nicely browned and crispy.

  • 3.

    Put bread on a serving plate and the bruschetta in a nice bowl and let the party begin!

You will need to supply plate for this as it can be messy sometimes is people get too much mix on their bread! if you want to make more just add some more to each of the ingredients ie: 12 -14 tomatos, 1 to 1 and 1/2 red onions and so on. do not worry you cannot muck this up just do not make the mix to wet. this recipe does take a long time with all the chopping but it comes together very quickly with no cooking of the main part.
