Sweet Tomato Toast

This recipe is ideal as an easy and inexpensive appetizer.
It might also be served on the side with a bowl of soup or a simple pasta dish.
You decide the quantities, based on how many you will be serving...

1 LOAF OF CRUSTY ITALIAN BREAD, cut in thick slices and toasted or grilled

CHEESE (use an easy melting cheese like fontina, mozzarella or provolone)
TOMATOES, halved (cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes)
CAPERS, drained
KALAMATA OLIVES, some chopped and some left whole
PARSLEY, some chopped and a few sprigs for garnish
GARLIC, one small clove finely minced
BLACK PEPPER, freshly ground

Put tomatoes, capers, olives, chopped parsley and garlic in a small bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil and add a splash of red wine vinegar.
Toss together and let sit for about 30 minutes.

Place pieces of cheese on top of grilled bread. Put in a hot oven (about 400 degrees) or under the broiler until the cheese melts.

Top with the tomato mixture. Be sure to use the juices that have mixed with the oil in the bottom of the bowl. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil and top with coarsely ground black pepper.
Garnish with parley sprigs and serve.

Bon Appétit!
