Is the Tomato Bruschetta Recipe served hot or cold?
Traditionally, bruschetta is served hot off the grill, when all the flavors melt into the golden bread. But even if it gets cold, it’s still delicious!
How do you cut tomatoes for bruschetta?
If you don’t want to squish your tomatoes in the process of slicing them, here’s what you should do. The best way to dice tomatoes is to hold the serrated or the chef’s knife parallel to the cutting board, and then cut the tomato halves horizontally into slices (they can be as thick as you’d like your tomato dices to be). Then, cut each stack of tomato slices into strips as wide as you’d like. Next, slice these strips crosswise into dices.
What can I use instead of bread for the Tomato Bruschetta Recipe?
Some substitutes for bread you can use and go great with the tomatoes, the garlic, basil and the Mazola® Corn Oil mix are vegetable buns, sandwich wraps and if you’re following a plant-based food regimen, mushroom or cauliflower pizza-pie.

Very limited and preliminary scientific evidence suggests that eating about 1 tablespoon (16 grams) of corn oil daily may reduce the risk of heart disease due to the unsaturated fat content in corn oil. FDA concludes that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim. To achieve this possible benefit, corn oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day.
