Saturday, January 19, 2013


Bruschetta (pronounced as brusketta) is an Italian Appetizer which is quick and easy to make. It is an appetizer from Central Italy whose origin dates to at least 15th century. It consists of toasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil, salt, and tomato salad. It is a very healthy breakfast consisting salad, toasted bread and very little cheese. The key of tasty and refreshing bruschetta is from its fresh ingredients.
