It's fakie bruschetta because I don't toast the bread, or cook the tomatoes. Italian tomatoes are the best* and so full of flavour that I like to eat it raw :)
- In a bowl, toss together the drained tomatoes, basil leaves, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Sautée the garlic in a little olive oil for a couple of minutes, just enough for it to soften and become aromatic. Pour onto the tomatoes.
- Squeeze the lemon over it, and mix well.
- Serve over thick slices of bread or as a refreshing side garnish to burgers and other meat dishes.
*compared to, oh, the other 6 countries I've lived in...
