EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Prepare and refrigerate tomato topping up to 24 hours ahead. Assemble crostini for baking no longer than 1 hour ahead or the bread will get soggy.

Capers are flower buds from the Mediterranean caper bush. These small buds are picked, dried in the sun and pickled in vinegar brine. They make great additions to salads and appetizers, such as this crostini.
