Bruschetta made with tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil.
My friend makes this every time we get together. I tried making it once and was puzzled why it was not like hers. I’d used the same ingredients but something was missing. This summer when we got together for our Washington, DC trip, I watched her closely. I was not squeezing the tomatoes to release the juices! That was the secret of her wonderful bruschetta. Oh and love!

- 2 heads of garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
