Preparate il composto per la bruschetta in anticipo e lasciatelo riposare in frigo per un'oretta e più per amalgamare bene i sapori e i profumi.

Ingredients: Pachino tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and olives from Gaeta; bread cut into slices or the classic Freselle or Friselle from Campania or Apulia.

For seasoning: Oil, garlic at your taste, oregano, salt, pepper and basilico.

Directions: Toast the bread in the oven for a few minutes. Slightly rub the garlic on one side of the bread slice.

Cut the tomatoes, chop the fresh mozzarella, add the pitted olives, then seasoned with olive oil, oregano, salt, and finally the basil cutting it into pieces with your fingers. You can also add a few drops of Modena balsamic vinegar IGP at your taste.

Leave in the refrigerator for about an hour to let all the flavors mixing well.
