LiveSTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s one-day grassroots initiative to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer. A worthy cause indeed.
My contribution to the event is the Yellow Tomato Brushchetta. It’s got beautiful colors, tasty flavors, simple and fresh ingredients. It’s a quick and easy recipe for sharing with a group of friends or family. Food has always brought people together to celebrate, mourn or support life’s events, great and small. A Taste of Yellow is a great one.
Yellow Tomato Bruschetta
Makes 16 pieces
4 ripe medium sized yellow tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper
1 French bread baguette
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil, oil and vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste, set aside.
Slice the bread into 16 pieces about a 1/4 inch thick and place on a baking sheet. Toast the bread in the oven for about 2 minutes on each side. Top with the tomato mixture. Or serve family style with the tomatoes in one bowl and the bread in another and everyone can just help themselves.
