Bruschetta with Love - Mini Heirloom Tomatoes with Basil and Oregano

I love making Bruschetta for my loved ones and myself because we are all great tomato fans. Last Summer I planted some San Marzano tomatoes and harvested them in the Fall and still use them until now. For this dish I got some Mini Heirloom tomatoes. Did you notice the shape of the bruschetta? Well, I'm entering this in the Hart-to-Hart contest launched by the the beautiful blog Cuocicucidici for Valentine's Day. Here's how I made this simple but delicious bruschetta for you.
You will need some mini heirloom tomatoes, of course. Wash and slice each one in half and put them in a mixing bowl.
Throw in some chiffonade of basil and fresh leaves of oregano. Grate 1 clove of garlic. I use a microplane for finer result.
Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss lightly and let marinate for some minutes. Get the best olive oil that is produced locally with the harvest and bottling date if possible. I am so fortunate to have Bariani olive oil that is produced just a couple of miles away from where I live.



Slice a thick piece of Miche bread in the middle of the loaf to get the desired shape. Toast it on cast iron griddle to crisp.
Put the marinated tomatoes on top of the toast and cut it in three portions. Remove the middle and join the two ends together to form a heart.


Enjoy Amore!
