    This was the best bruschetta I've ever made! I made it twice, once with onions and once without. I think I'd go with half the amount of onion the next time since the onion dominated the other tastes. Overall, it was very delicious.  -  17 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great twist on the classic tomato-based bruschetta. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little extra bite, while the roasted peppers lend a savory sweetness. Definitely a big hit at parties.  -  12 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy and very tasty. Even better with feta cheese added.  -  15 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
