I shamelessly say that I stole this recipe from Savory Salty Sweet. Normally if another blogger posts a recipe, I try to refrain from re-posting it almost immediately. But I couldn’t resist this time. It just looked so yummy. I had to try it. So here it is with minimal changes. And it is just as good as she said it would be.
One Year Ago: Azerbaijan Salad
White Bean and Tomato Bruschetta
- 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 ½ cups chopped tomato, seeds removed
- 1 ½ cups cooked white beans (canned, rinsed beans are fine)
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- A grating of myzithra or Parmesan cheese
- 1 loaf of crusty bread, cut into slices, brushed with olive oil, and grilled until crisp
In a large bowl, combine minced garlic with olive oil and red wine vinegar. Stir to combine, then set aside while you seed and chop the tomatoes. Add tomatoes to garlic and olive mixture, along with the white beans, chopped herbs, salt and pepper. Stir to combine, then taste for seasoning.
To serve, pile on top of slices of grilled bread then sprinkle with a bit of grated cheese.
Ooooo… Garlic… Italian parsley… Oh my!
Very colorful. Looks fresh and delicious!
Thanks! It is super tasty.
A great way to use some of my fresh tomatoes.
Yes ma’am. I have been making so many tomato recipes that I am running out (I only have 4 plants).
Would you believe I have over three dozen heirlooms and a huge bowl of cherry tomatoes in the kitchen now. What is crazy is that I’m just starting to pick. Note to self…no ones needs 15 plants. Haven’t heard yes ma’am since I left Texas.
I wish I had more. Note to self- I need more than 4 plants. And my mother taught me to always say ma’am and sir, though it does tend to surprise people. Kind of sad that we have lost that as a society.
I totally agree on both counts.
