Last week on WMUR Cooks Corner we showed how to make a delicious Fresh Tomato Bruschetta over arugula salad and garlic crostini with fresh herbs and arugula from Fresh Start Farms! Here is the recipe:
Fresh Tomato Bruschetta over arugula salad and garlic crostini
4 large LOCAL ripe tomatoes
3 cloves LOCAL garlic, minced
¼ cup fresh LOCAL parsley chopped
¼ cup fresh LOCAL basil chopped
Sea Salt and Pepper - freshly ground
3 Tablespoons Cucina Aurora Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
Hearty LOCAL Italian bread cut into 6 half inch slices
2 cups fresh LOCAL arugula
Romano Cheese grated (optional)- Imported from Italy
Note: if these ingredients can't be found locally, choose Organic and enjoy the pure taste of real food.
1. Brush each side of sliced bread with Cucina Aurora Roasted Garlic Olive Oil. Broil on high for 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove from broiler when golden brown.
2. In a medium bowl toss arugula with 1 tablespoon of Roasted Garlic Olive Oil until evenly coated. Set aside.
3. Chop the tomatoes into small cubes and combine them in a large bowl with minced garlic, chopped herbs, salt and pepper. Toss with the remaining Roasted Garlic Olive Oil. Arrange the crostini on a serving dish and layer each one with arugula then a generous topping of the herbed tomato mixture. Top with Romano cheese if desired. Serve immediately or chill for up to an hour before serving.
