Balsamic Bruschetta is an all time favorite amongst all age groups. It originates from central Italy and is usually served as an appetizer. It is one of the simplest dish to make and can immensely gratify your tasting buds. People who don’t even like tomatoes, do like bruschetta. It’s like some magic, magic of ingredients like fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and that heavenly Parmesan or Mozzarella. When you whisk all these together with the tomatoes, it turns into food heaven. You can use any nice French bread and top it with your favourite toppings. This is one of the most lovable and wanted recipes and greatly enjoyed especially when served with a round of light mocktails. It’s a very simple appetiser that can be made even with very little time in hand, which makes it just perfect for that impromptu get together at home. It tastes best if the mixture is left for 1 to 2 hours before serving, this helps to blend the flavours. Bruschetta is also a wise choice to indulge in as it is less in calories.
