This is one of our favourite Mediterranean snacks, and this is my version.
Make a mix of chopped tomatoes, a small onion, 1 clove of garlic (grated or through a garlic crusher), a pinch of chilli flakes, salt, pepper, 3 or 4 leaves of fresh mint or basil (chopped) and a glug of olive oil.
Spoon onto slices of Maltese bread (the most delicious bread in the world – although ciabatta and sourdough make a good substitute). We add some chopped bacon on top of our bruschetta for a bit of extra saltiness and put under a grill for a few minutes until the bacon is crispy.
Drizzle some more olive oil on the top once you take the bruschetta out and serve with an olive oil and balsamic vinegar mix.
