Olive and Pistachio Bruschetta

Photo: Jeffrey Cross; Food Styling: Karen Shinto

This combo has everything we love in a great appetizer--it's salty, crunchy, savory, and just a little decadent. If you're doubling or tripling the recipe for a party, you can set out the toppings and the grilled toasts brushed with olive oil to let your guests build their own.

Yield: Serves 8 (makes 16) (serving size: 2 toasts)
