Healthy Recipe: Bruschetta with Tomato-Basil Relish

Simple garlic-rubbed grilled toast rounds with a tomato topping –yumm. It must be summer! Fresh tomatoes are in great supplyright now. Choose from the many varieties at your local farmer’s market or produce stand.* Any variety tastes great, and you can make a tomato topping in a variety of ways. We like this healthy eating combination, which is a variation on the healthy recipe Tomato Relish in Green Mountain's Recipes for Living cookbook. 

Makes 4 servings

Grilled Toast Rounds
16 slices French bread (or about 8 slices Italian bread)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove

Brush both sides of bread slices with olive oil and place on medium hot grill; grill until lightly brown; turn and grill other side. Remove from grill and rub one side of toasts with garlic. Serve with Tomato- Basil Relish (below).

Tomato-Basil Relish
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped basil

Mix tomatoes, onion, garlic, olive oil, vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in basil and season with salt and pepper to taste Cover and let stand about 30 minutes.

*If you’re worried about tomato safety, the government warnings as of June 2008 say cherry and grape tomatoes, those sold with the vine attached and those grown at home are safe to eat.
