Ingredients[edit]

Procedures[edit]

  1. Hand chop all vegetables then fold together gently but thoroughly.
  2. Add balsamic to taste.
  3. Let stand 20 minutes or refrigerate until serve.
  4. The longer you store this the juicier it becomes, so draining excess liquid will keep it from getting mushy if you're storing it for more than a day.

Crostini[edit]

  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Cut French bread into ½" slices (day-old bread works best because it's not so soft that it squishes when cut).
  3. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray/brush with olive oil or PAM.
  4. Lay bread slices flat and lightly spray/brush with olive oil or PAM.
  5. Bake 6 – 10 minutes or until crispy.
  6. Allow to cool then serve or store in tight container.

Notes[edit]

These volumes are forgiving. I never have measured ingredients for this recipe once! Do it to taste and what looks good.
