Additional Info

Adapted from recipe on TasteofHome.com

This recipe can be adapted with many other flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars - to get the taste perfect for your palate. Try it with Basil or Tuscan Herb olive oil instead of, or in addition to, the Garlic olive oil. For a fruity twist, try drizzling with Strawberry balsamic. Or, if you don't like balsamic vinegar, feel free to leave this off and just enjoy the bruschetta without the drizzle.
