Cheesecake Factory Bruschetta Recipe

The other night when I served the cream cheese bruschetta, I also made this one. My son was home and I knew he wasn't fond of cream cheese so I decided to make this recipe for him. It's from the Top Secret Restaurant Recipes cookbook by Todd Wilbur.

I have never had the bruschetta from the Cheesecake Factory, but I can say that this recipe was great! We all liked it and had a hard time deciding which bruschetta we liked the best!

Cheesecake Factory Bruschetta

1 1/2 c. chopped Roma tomatoes
2 Tbsp. red onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
dash of black pepper
7 slices crusty Italian bread
1/4 tsp.garlic salt

Combine the tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and basil. Add the1/2 Tbsp oil, vinegar,salt and pepper and mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour.Slice the bread and mix the remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil with the garlic salt. Brush each side of the bread and broil each side until lightly brown. Serve with chilled tomato mixture.
