Purple Basil Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Get a bit more exotic with your bruschetta by changing up the colors and flavors! This Purple Basil Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta is inspired by the purple basil growing in my garden, as well as my yellow and red heirloom cherry tomatoes. You can find purple basil at your farmers market, or you can easily grow it yourself.

Bruschetta is a great way to use up a bumper crop of tomatoes in your garden, such as these heirloom beauties from mine.
