Fresh Tomato Sauce
1 14-1/2-ounce can of no-salt-added diced tomatoes, or 1-1/2 cups fresh chopped tomatoes, seeds and skin removed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
If using fresh tomatoes, chop to desired size. If using canned tomatoes, drain juice. (Petite-cut diced tomatoes are the ideal size for making bruschetta.) Mix all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use, or use immediately. To make a dipping sauce, put it in a blender and blend on high about 10 seconds.
