Bruschetta is an appetizer that comes from Italy and if you’ve never had one, well you must give it a try. It’s delicious, it’s fresh, and there are many variations of it. I’ve made many different types of bruschetta in my days, and mostly because it’s my husband’s favorite appetizer.
For this bruschetta, I decided to make it with provolone cheese, but I’ve made it with mozzarella before, with grated Parmesan, or with no cheese at all. Bruschetta is very versatile, there are even versions of it where you can add prosciutto. Some versions are with onions, some without. I think it’s totally up to you and use whatever ingredients you love or have on hand.

- ½ onion, chopped
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, diced
