Nectar of the Gods

To be honest I watched Julie and Julia again the night I had my migraine and in one of the first scenes they are eating bruschetta and they film that so you can almost taste that warm delicious treat. It has been on my 'have to make' list ever since. When I made this nectarine salsa that I mention in Bird is the Word, I immediately knew it would be fantabulous (as my friend KK says) on toasted crusty bread. Well we had it last night and it was better than that. This one is going in regular rotation. I'm not sure what makes the magic exactly, the nectarines are just the right amount of sweet mixed with tang and citrus. Chopping everything fresh and right on the spot and letting the flavors get all cozy together helps, at room temperature. Also I added some basil along with the cilantro and the two herbs work really well together with this. I rubbed the garlic on the toasted bread as soon as it came out of the oven and drizzled the olive oil on it before topping with just a spoon of the salsa. Then as just a little somethin' somethin', I sprinkled some crumbled Cotijo cheese on top. Heaven.
