Directions

  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).
  3. Brush both sides of bread slices with some of the 1/4 cup of olive oil; place slices onto a baking sheet. Toast the bread until golden brown and crunchy on the outside, about 3 minutes per side. To serve, spoon the tomato mixture onto the toasted bruschetta and arrange on a serving platter.

Good but have had better. The hubby can't eat raw tomatoes, so as well as the normal batch, I made a batch with bell peppers instead. Chopped the peppers and boiled them for 8 minutes. Then shocked them in ice water. Wanted them not raw, but still crisp. The batch with the peppers in place of the tomatoes completely outshone the first batch. Even tomato lovers were snagging the pepper batch instead.

This was a hit for Christmas Eve! I left out the fennel and used white onions. I used whole wheat bread cut up into small squares. Everybody loved it! Very good!

i understand that the name of the recipe indicates that the fennel taste will be pronounced.. but this was just too fennel-y for me.. it felt out of place.. i ended up topping my bruschetta with some grated mozz to save the dish
