Caesar Bruschetta
Yield:   6-12 servings
Cook Time:   About 5 minutes for broiling bread slices
Tips:   Wider loaves of bread will produce larger individual servings. For very small servings, use baguettes that have a 2 to 3-inch diamater. Rustic artisanal or Italian style breads accompany this tomato bruschetta nicely, due to their chewy texture.
Suggestion:   Serve as a healthy appetizer or snack for parties, holidays or any event, or for snacking anytime.
Preheat the broiler or preheat a grill to medium-high.

Dice tomatoes into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces and place in a strainer to drain any excess juice. If using a baguette, cut twelve 1/2-inch diagonal slices from the loaf. If using a thicker bread
loaf (with a larger diameter), cut into six 1/2-inch slices, then cut each slice in half crosswise, making 12 pieces. (Use any leftover bread for another purpose.)

Lightly brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil and broil or grill bread slices on each side until lightly toasted and golden brown around the edges. Sprinkle the toasted bread slices lightly with salt, then transfer to a platter.

In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the tomatoes, basil, onion, garlic and Caesar dressing. Scoop equal amounts of the tomato mixture on top of each toasted bread slice. If desired, sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and garnish with basil leaves.
