This Tomato Bruschetta Recipe is the perfect summertime appetizer when the tomatoes are in season, and basil is plenty!


  • 2 pounds ripe, cherry tomatoes, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced (I use a microplane, and grate the garlic cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons basil ribbons (see notes!)
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 2 teaspoons caper brine
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. An hour before serving, gently combine all ingredients in a glass mixing bowl.
  2. Serve with toasted baguette slices.


To create basil ribbons, roll up several leaves of basil, and slice crosswise.
