This a great and easy appetizer. I usually serve it with toasted garlic buttered bread, but crackers work well also.

Roma Tomatoes, chopped: 3 ea
Garlic, chopped fine:  2 Tablespoons
Red Onion, chopped fine:  1/4 cup
Fresh Basil, chopped: 6 leaves
Salt: 1/4 teaspoon
Pepper: pinch
Italian Bread: 1 loaf
Garlic Butter Spread, soften:  2-4 oz

1.  Prepare all ingredients and mix together in a bowl.  Allow to marinate together for 1 to 2 hours covered in the refrigerator. 

2.  About 20 minutes prior to serving the Brushetta, pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees, slice your italian bread in 1/2 inch slices at a bias and spread with the garic butter.  Arrange on a baking sheet buttered side up and place in oven and toast until the edges are golden brown.  Remove from oven and arrange on a platter with your Brushetta.
