Preparation

In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and basil; season lightly with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and vinegar, and toss well to combine. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, but no longer than 3. Heat broiler or grill pan. Cut bread diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Brush both sides lightly with olive oil; grill or broil on both sides until toasted.

Rub hot bread lightly with garlic cloves on one side only. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and top with tomato mixture. Let stand a few minutes to allow juices to soak into bread before serving. Makes 15 to 20. Source: "Martha Stewart Living - ~~ltwww.marthastewart.com>" S(Formatted for MC5): "by Lynn Thomas - Lynn_Thomas~~at;prodigy.net"

Garlic bread makes this dish. I was able to use crusty bread I thought I'd have to throw out. Also I added some quartered cherry tomatoes which gave it a nice sweetness

Bruschetta should NEVER have cucumber or onions in it. Use Balsamic instead.

Enjoyed the freshness of this. Great on crackers. I didn't have red wine vinegar so substituted pinot vinegar. Thanks for sharing!

The topping is the main thing in this dish. The ingredients must be fresh and bright in color.
