Why do people like Bruschetta?

brsketaThere’s a new invention in Italian appetizers called Bruschetta.  Pronounced Broosketta.

It is basically toast with tomato chunks on it.  I tried it for the first time at a nice Italian restaurant and was not impressed.

It is very popular for some reason but I don’t know why.  Maybe because it is new?  Maybe because it is trendy?  It’s not because of the flavor.

I give Bruschetta two Mehs.  Rather have bread with olive oil and herb dip.
