My inspiration for this recipe came from the original BJ’s restaurant in Southern California. Before they became a chain found across the country, there were only about a dozen BJ’s restaurants in Southern California and they served the best Tomato Basil Bruschetta!

One day I went to BJ’s and found that this bruschetta was no longer on the menu. I was so upset, but I came home determined to re-create and perfect the recipe at home. I can now proudly say that I did just that!

I serve this bruschetta regularly as an appetizer with my favorite Italian dishes like Beef Ragu, Tomato Basil Chicken Skewers and Italian Shrimp and Polenta.  The number one comment I get when serving this dish is, “it tastes so fresh!”
