Why it's healthy? I'll let the ingredients speak for themselves:
3 large tomatoes
1 yellow bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp cilantro (less if you're not a huge cilantro fan)
1 small red onion
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 loaf french bread, sliced
1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used extra old cheddar cuz it's all I had, but you can be more creative)
Dice all veggies and put together in a large bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar and cilantro.
In a pan, heat a bit more oil and saute garlic for 3-4 min. Add garlic to veggie mixture. Preheat oven on to broil at this point.
Add sliced bread to pan, brown on each side. Remove bread from pan and set on baking sheet. Add bruschetta to bread, sprinkle with cheese and broil for 3-5 min.
The result... delicious, homemade bruschetta! Enjoy!
