Meals from our Garden

OK a favorite meal of ours this summer has been Bruschetta. Even my boys (10 and 13) love it so it works for everyone here at our house. We have developed our own recipe taking into account what we love and will work in Bruschetta.

We love to sit and watch a movie and have Bruschetta instead of popcorn sometimes, or eat it as a snack in the middle of the day or as a meal. Here is our recipe:

Diced tomatoes, as many as you like
Diced cucumber, again as many as you like
1 diced sweet onion
1-2 cloves of crushed garlic, or more if you like more garlic
S&P to taste
chopped fresh basil
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1-2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1-2 tsp lime juice

Mix it all up in a bowl and let it set for a few minutes
Toasted bread of any variety you like. Pita chips will also
work when you just can't wait for that bread to toast :-)
