Copycat Olive Garden Bruschetta al Pomodoro

Olive Garden is one of my family’s favorite places to grab a bite and we love to share appetizers.  Besides their fabulous stuffed mushrooms, our favorite is Bruschetta al Pomodoro.  Fresh tomatoes and basil, garlic and just a touch of olive oil, come together for simple salad that is spooned over crispy toasted bread.  Copycat Olive Garden Bruschetta al Pomodoro is a fantastic starter to any meal, and is perfect for a summer meal, with a few deli meats and a salad.

Fresh Tomatoes Make Copycat Olive Garden Bruschetta al Pomodoro

The best Copycat Olive Garden Bruschetta al Pomodoro starts with fresh garden tomatoes.  Romas make the best bruschetta, as they are meaty with a low amount of seeds. Look for tomatoes that are uniformly red, and yield to gentle pressure.  The flavor will be amazing.  If you have a local farmer’s market, check to see if they have some Romas.
