How to prepare Tomato bruschetta
To prepare tomato bruschetta, first wash the tomatoes, divide them in half 1 and then cut them into cubes 2. Pour the cut tomatoes into a bowl and add basil leaves, previously washed and dried 3.
Season with a pinch of oregano 4, salt 5, pepper and oil 6. Stir well and let the flavors blend for about 30 minutes. This step is optional, but we recommend it to enhance scents and flavors.

Now top the bread slices with your tomato salad 10, drizzling a little more oil 11. Let rest for a couple of minutes, then serve your tomato bruschettas 12!
Tomato bruschettas taste best as soon as ready.
You can flavor the slices of bread by rubbing a clove of garlic on freshly toasted slices or enrich the tomato salad with well-drained tuna in oil!
