Expert Tips

  • 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 bruschetta.
  • Use 1 cup chopped tomatoes instead of the roasted peppers and chopped fresh basil leaves instead of the parsley for another great appetizer idea.
