What is in Bruschetta? 

Many of your favorite Italian ingredients are what is in bruschetta. Primarily, we use plump, fresh tomatoes that are small diced and juicy. They’re then mixed with garlic, basil, and olive oil. The final product is bright and tangy with delicious herbal notes. Think of it as salsa with Italian flavors. However, you won’t be scooping bruschetta onto chips. What bread is used for bruschetta? We use crusty French bread that’s been sliced and toasted so it holds up to the juices in our fresh bruschetta. Our Stickney guests delight in this fresh and flavorful appetizer! If you enjoy our salads and are looking for an alternative to our crispy vegetable appetizers like our fried mushrooms and fried zucchini, bruschetta is a great way to go. We’re sure it’ll be a popular choice at your Riverside dinner table.
