Caprese Bruschetta



Reusing leftover bread was a habit that dates back to when food was scarce on our tables, and we always looked for ways to preserve it or give it a second life. This is the case with friselle and bread bruschetta. Caprese bruschetta is a typical Neapolitan delight, made with sliced and toasted durum wheat bread, on which, after being rubbed with garlic, pieces of buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil, oregano, whole black olives (preferably Gaeta olives), salt, and extra virgin olive oil are placed.
Caprese bruschetta is a wholly Mediterranean delight, which can serve as a substantial appetizer, but also as a fresh and quick second course.

How to prepare Caprese Bruschetta

To prepare Caprese bruschetta, cut 4 slices of bread about 3/4 inch thick 1, and toast them on both sides under the oven grill or on a non-stick pan 2. When they are golden, take each slice of toasted bread and rub a clove of garlic on them 3 (one clove should be enough for all 4 slices of bread).

Once you have prepared the bread slices, set them aside and prepare the ingredients for the Caprese bruschetta topping. Drain the buffalo mozzarella well and cut it into small cubes 4; cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters as well 5. In a bowl, combine the mozzarella, black olives, and quartered tomatoes 6.

Add the basil broken by hand, oregano, extra virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt (7-8). Mix well to blend the flavors. Place the toasted bread slices on a serving plate and top them with the prepared mixture, divided equally among the slices 9. Drizzle the Caprese bruschetta with a little extra virgin olive oil and serve.
