Bruschetta, or grilled bread, is a crisper, more flavorful alternative to American garlic bread. Here it's topped with a combination of tomatoes and capers. Munch on this while you prepare the rest of the dinner.

  • Shortly before serving, cut bread into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Grill on both sides or broil until lightly toasted.

  • While the bread is grilling (or toasting), place the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and garlic in a small saucepan and warm on the grill, or if you are using the broiler, over low heat on top of the stove.

  • Brush one side of bread with the garlic oil and spoon the tomato mixture over top. Serve immediately.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the tomato mixture (Step 1) for up to 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before using.
