3 or 4 ripe Roma tomatoes
1 cloves garlic, minced + 1/2 tsp garlic powder (not garlic salt)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (generally I don't measure)
1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar or 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (I prefer lemon)
4-5 fresh basil leaves, chopped, plus some dried  basil
Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Baguette French bread or similar bread   + 1/4 cup olive oil for brushing the bread.


Chop the tomatoes and add the salt, black pepper and toss lightly.
Now add olive oil, minced garlic, garlic powder, dried basil and lemon juice.
Cut the basil leaves into thin ribbons and add it to the tomatoes, mix well with spoon.

Cut the bread into thin slices and brush them with olive oil. Toast the bread lightly, top each with 2 tablespoons of Bruschetta.
