I love tomatoes. Darren loves tomatoes. I love garlic. Darren… not so much, but still.
When we’re short on time and/or inspiration, but still want something filling and tasty and perhaps a little off the beaten path, this works out really really well! Tonight I made bruschetta with artichokes and mozzarella, and served it atop some awesome four-cheese ciabatta I found at the grocery store =)

The goods:
2 vine-ripe tomatoes, medium to small dice
1 tsp or so minced garlic
1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh mozzarella, medium dice
1/2 cup artichoke hearts, rough chopped (I got the marinated stuff from the olive bar at the supermarket =))
drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
several shakes dried basil
salt & pepper to taste
splash or two of red wine vinegar

nice crusty bread, sliced, drizzled with olive oil, and toasted

The method:
mix all the stuff together, taste and tinker with it as needed, serve on top and/or with crusty bread.
Enjoy!! =)
