Artichoke bruschetta - country living

Yield: 24 bruschetta

Measure Ingredient
1 14-inch loaf Italian bread
1 cup Drained, canned artichoke hearts, chopped
1 cup Chopped, seeded, fresh tomato
¼ cup Finely chopped onion
3 Cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1½ tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
½ teaspoon Ground black pepper
Fresh-grated Parmesan cheese (opt.)

1. Heat oven to 350'F. With serrated knife, cut off ends from bread and reserve for another use. Slice remaining bread crosswise into twenty-four ½-inch-thick pieces. Place bread slices on ungreased baking sheet; bake 10 minutes or until lightly toasted.

2. In medium-size bowl, combine artichoke hearts, tomato, onion, garlic, oil, vinegar, and pepper.

3. Divide artichoke mixture among toasted bread and spread to cover surface. Drizzle any juice remaining in bowl over bruschetta and sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Arrange bruschetta on platter and serve.
