So I might be late in the game, but I only recently learned that Bruschetta is pronounced (brus-sketta) and not (bru-shetta). This entire time I have been pronouncing it wrong! Who knew! Did you know?? Now that I know how to pronounce bruschetta, it is deemed appropriate for me to share an all time favorite recipe of how I like to make it.
I love enjoying it with a nice piece of bread, crackers, or in this case endives. Endives have sooo many health benefits, and although they have a bit of a bitter taste, this bruschetta recipe compliments it and creates a well balance of flavors with the sweetness of the cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. The best part is it literally takes 5 minutes to whip up and makes a perfect light lunch, or an appetizer to impress your friends and family at any gathering. Feel free to double or triple the recipe. I hope you try it and love it as much as I do, and if you do, please comment below and let me know your thoughts.
