Directions:

Seed and juice tomatoes, chop; finely mince garlic; chop basil.

Combine tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil and vinegar; salt and pepper to taste. Chill one hour to blend flavors.
Crumble or dice cheese, set aside.

Slice bread, and place slices 6 inches from broiler unit in oven; toast on both sides until golden brown (1-2 minutes per side).

Brush slices with olive oil, spoon chopped tomatoes on each slice, top with cheese and return to oven just until cheese is melted.

Note:

The American version of Bruschetta is made with chopped tomatoes and basil, but you can add olives, try a variety of roasted vegetables (such as onion, sweet peppers, eggplant, beans, zucchini – or a combination of vegetables) or experiment with different cheeses (such as crumbled Gorgonzola or Feta cheese).
