My Simple Go too bruschetta recipe. Simple, easy, and fun

Bruschetta

As a mother of two young children, meals must be quick and easy. Over the years, I’ve developed my own simple, yet tasty mental cookbook for any occasion. I learned how to cook watching my mom’s pot (LOL); to me, my mother is the most amazing cook. I remember being a kid and breathing down her back asking when dinner was going to be ready. My mom is an old school Jamaican cook and when I ask for her recipes, measurements are usually: “add a little bit of that”, “season to your liking” and “add a pinch of this” and “add a pinch of that”. And so, that is why I call it my mental cookbook.

Even though I grew up with the Jamaican type of cuisine, I still have some love for Italian cuisine and so I thought I’d share mygo-to recipe for my Bruschetta. It is always a hit whenever I’m hosting dinner parties or just for a quick bite.

Instructions:

Chop tomatoes into tiny squares 
Strip the ends of the Scallions and cut them in small circles
I use Scallions instead of red onions (I like the subtle taste of onions)
