Vegan brushetta is an easy appetizer

This easy vegan bruschetta is made with fresh tomatoes and basil and drizzled with olive oil. No cheese is needed if you use fresh red ripe tomatoes and flavorful basil. As for the salt, sea salt or kosher salt will give the best flavor. If you keep a gourmet olive oil or salt blend on hand, this is the time to bring it out for maximum vegan flavor!
