Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil

In summer we want something light and refreshing. That is why I recommend you to prepare bruschetta. This is a classic Italian appetizer which is represented by a fried slice of crispy fresh bread. A variety of ingredients can serve as a stuffing: fresh or roasted vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, olives, different types of cheese and curd, meat and fish. Today we are going to prepare the classic version of appetizers-antipasto with cherry tomatoes and green basil. It is very simple to cook, but it turns out very tasty and fragrant.
