Cost: £1 / $1
- 1 loaf Ciabatta, divided into 12 pieces (see notes)
- 9oz / 250g Tomatoes, finely diced (see notes)
- 2.5oz / 75g Feta, crumbled
- 1/2 small Red Onion, finely diced

In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, feta, basil, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and a good pinch of salt & pepper (to taste). Place to one side.
Brush the ciabatta with the remaining oil. In batches, add to a griddle pan over high heat and fry both sides until crisp and lightly charred.
Lightly rub garlic across one side of each of the ciabatta slices. Top with the bruschetta mix and drizzle over balsamic glaze.
a) Balsamic Glaze - Check out my Homemade Balsamic Glaze!
b) Bread - Essentially you can use any Italian bread to have a coarse/rough texture when sliced. Tuscan or Pugliese bread are traditionally used. A sourdough also works great. The loaf I used here was around 7oz/200g for reference. You may get more or less than 12 pieces depending on how thick you like the slices to be.
c) What type of Feta to use - In terms of what Feta to use, a traditional Greek works great because it's slightly firmer than say Danish Feta, which turns slightly creamy when mixed with the other Bruschetta toppings. All down to preference :)
d) What Tomatoes to use? - You can really use any tomatoes you want, just made sure they're ripe and fresh! Really go the extra mile to find the best quality tomatoes to use and make them the hero ingredient in this bruschetta.
