How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the broiler. Put the bread on a baking sheet and brush both sides with the oil. Sprinkle with the salt.

Step 2

Broil, turning once, until the bread is brown on the outside but still slightly soft in the center, about 3 minutes. Alternatively (and more traditionally), grill the bread. Cut each slice of bread into quarters.

Step 3

Variations: Bruschetta can be topped with endless combinations of ingredients. Some of our favorites to try:: * Chopped tomato and basil: * Diced roasted bell peppers with crumbled goat cheese: * Drained canned tuna and capers: * Strips of Parmigiano-Reggiano: * A split garlic clove rubbed over the toast, followed by a generous drizzle of olive oil.
