Capers and olives add briny, salty flavor to this fresh tomato bruschetta.


  • 4 small tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 6 Kalamata olives, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 garlic cloves, one grated, one halved
  • ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 6 to 8 slices Pavé or other rustic country bread
  • Fresh basil


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the tomatoes, olives, capers, grated garlic, vinegar, salt, and several grinds of pepper.
  • Drizzle the bread slices with olive oil and grill until lightly charred, or toast in the oven. Use the cut-side of the garlic halves to rub garlic onto the hot bread. Top with the tomato mixture and fresh basil.
