I came up with this recipe when I lived in Los Angeles, CA. It makes a great appetizer and is easy to make!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This bruschetta recipe is different from others I've made in that it introduces capers and a healthy amount of Parmigianino reggiano. It was a refreshing change from the traditional recipe, and I predict it would be a real hit at your next gathering!

roma tomatoes (seeded and diced)
small jar of capers (rinsed well in water)
bunch of green onions (diced)
bunch fresh basil
4 clove
garlic (minced)
1 pinch
kosher salt
3 Tbsp
good olive oil
2 Tbsp
lemon juice or balsamic vinegar (optional)
3 tsp
fresh parmigiano reggiano (optional)
1 tsp
oregano, dried
loaf of bread (toasted with olive oil/garlic)


In a bowl, put tomatoes, capers and green onions. Add the juice of one lemon and the olive oil. Then add the garlic and fresh basil. Toss well. Season with just a pinch or so of kosher salt. (Be sure to rinse the capers or bruschetta will be too salty.) Serve with toasty bread and sprinkle with fresh parmesan. Yummy.
