This easy tomato basil bruschetta recipe is a perfect summer appetizer that will show of the awesomeness of summer ripe tomatoes!


1 pound cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/3 cup basil, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

1 clove garlic, grated

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

Toasty bread for serving (if topping crostini, you’ll need about 50 pieces)

Optional: additional balsamic glaze



Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

Serve the tomato basil mixture on top of toasty bread and if you’d like, drizzle with additional balsamic glaze.


  • Tomato mixture can be made up to 3 days before serving.
  • If your tomatoes are very watery, feel free to get rid of some of it.
  • The serving size is based off of serving the topping with my crostini recipe. The tomato basil mixture will make enough to top 50 pieces of crostini. So 1 serving is about 4 pieces of tomato basil topped crostini
