"This bruschetta is really delicious, a little different than the average bruschetta. It always gets devoured around my house, or wherever I take it. The fennel seed really makes the dish. "

  1. In a bowl, mix together the tomatoes, onion, garlic, fennel seed, basil, 1/3 cup olive oil, salt, and pepper. Chill for at least 1 hour to blend the flavors.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
