I tried several bruschetta recipes before choosing this one for a tapas & sangria party. Fresh, bright flavors, and easy to make ahead.

This was incredibly flavorful! We served with store bought bagel chips and toasts. Will definitely make again!

WOW!!!! my husband and i loved it!! i made it with heirloom tomatoes... they were really juicy (had a lot of juice in the bowl after i chopped them) so i added extra vinegar and capers to make sure there was enough flavor. My husband and I looked at each other and said "MMMMmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
