Bruschetta alla Siciliana

Bruschetta is a large slice of toasted (grilled) bread topped with local fresh produce; typically with tomato and herbs but the varieties are endless. On Sicily capers, olives, tomatoes, and basil are typically used to prepare bruschetta. This is one of the most popular choices.


4 large slices of toasted bread

Olive oil

2 cloves garlic

6 ripe tomatoes

½ cup capers

Small bunch of fresh basil

Ground pepper

Cooking instructions:

Prepare the tomatoes. Wash them, peel the skin off, then dice after discarding the interiors with seeds. Place in a bowl and set aside. Chop the herbs. Drain the capers.

Bring the basil leaves together and roll into a tube. Then chop thinly with a sharp knife.

Place the toasted bread slices on serving plates. Sprinkle with some olive oil.

Cut the garlic cloves in half and rub each slice generously with the garlic. Season with some salt.

Arrange tomatoes and capers on top of the bread. Garnish with a dash of basil.
