Peach & roasted red pepper bruschetta recipe

Here’s a different kind of bruschetta. The bread is toasted without oil and garlic, so that the sweet flavors of the juicy peaches and roasted peppers can be fully appreciated. This sweetness is nicely balanced by the red wine vinegar and basil. You could also try this bruschetta mixture on grilled chicken or fish. Delicious!

  19. Bruschetta, as we know it today, has been around since at least the 1500s when tomatoes were first introduced to Europe from Peru. It is believed that the recipe was first served in central Italy. It is common to toast the bread and then rub garlic onto it. But in my recipe, I like to place the garlic in with the tomato and basil. This is a wonderful starting dish for a several coarse dinner. There are a number of variations on the theme. I personally prefer the simple taste of the bruschetta below, but you can add mozzarella to the top and put under a broiler to melt the cheese. You can also add red pepper, different types of meat (e.g., prosciutto), or even beans. Try out some variations and see what you think. The best is what you like.
