Bruschetta Salsa

bruschetta salsa

Happy almost 4th of July!  I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe celebration this weekend.  We are planning on relaxing as much as possible, and eating some good food, of course ;-).  One of my favorite things to make for summer celebrations is my bruschetta salsa.  It contains all of the flavors of bruschetta in a dip, and pairs perfectly with crostini.  I originally posted this recipe last year, and wanted to share it again for anyone looking for something a little different for their 4th of July celebration.

Bruschetta Dip

1 1/2 cups (enough for a large party of 20 to 30 guests, with other appetizers)

Ingredients

  • 6 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1/8 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Chop the tomatoes (into 6 to 8 chunks) and garlic. Rough chop the basil.
  • Add the tomatoes, vinegar, salt, and sugar to a food processor, and give it a few pulses. Add the garlic and basil and give it about 8 to 10 pulses for a salsa like consistency (less pulses for a chunkier dip).
  • Pair with crostini. Enjoy 🙂
  • Notes

    Use the left-overs as a pasta or pizza sauce...delicious. For best results, puree the sauce if using on pizza.

    I am excited to take my pancakes to Fiesta Friday #128   and Throwback Thursday #47!
