1 Red chili, minced
2 tb Fresh breadcrumbs, if needed
6 sl Italian country-style bread,
-- cut 3/4" to 1" thick &

1 tb Olive oil

Whisk together the vinegar & oil. Stir in the parsley & basil. Add the
garlic & pepper flakes. Leave for 2 hours to let the flavours meld. If the
mixture seems to thin, add the breadcrumbs.

Grill or toast the bread slices. While they are still warm, brush with a
little olive oil, spread with the bruschetta topping & serve.
