Bruschetta with Kale
A simple, light appetizer of toasted garlic bread topped with kale. Use crusty Italian bread, which is strong enough to hold the stewed greens. Recipe courtesy of Chef Alessandro Gargani.

When it comes to the perfect snack, I'm looking for unfussy, bite-sized morsels that I can pick up and eat with my hands. Simple bruschetta comes to mind instantly. Slices of crusty baguette, toasted, and topped with fresh, garlicky tomatoes, and a sprinkling of basil — it's tough to find a dish more satisfying, and it couldn't be easier to make.  Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Snacks.

Bruschetta Pasta
I had something similar to this in a restaurant once. It was good, but of course I think this version is way better, mostly because I get to put in as much garlic and basil as I want — which means it has to be delicious. I may not be nice to talk to afterward, but at least I know I am vampire-safe. Click here to see 101 Ways to Cook Chicken

Cherry Tomato Bruschetta.. in the making
I love the concept of standing in the kitchen and chatting with a friend while whipping up some culinary masterpiece. I don’t know about you though, but that's not how it has ever really gone for me. Usually, I can’t think about anything but what I’m making, so my sentences often have random ingredients thrown in. But this dish — this bright, sweet, colorful dish — is the perfect drink-wine-while-chatting-and-cooking-all-at-once snack. Case in point: a good friend was in town, so I invited her to my place for a glass of wine and some snacks. (In this story, snacks = cherry tomato bruschetta.) We successfully stood at the kitchen counter, drinking a light California red, while I cooked up this extremely easy and tasty bite. It is a great appetizer or side dish and is virtually fool proof. The salt and the rosemary cut the sweetness of the tomatoes and the warm, slightly crispy (and salty) bread is the perfect carrier for it all. Click here to see more Tasty Tomato Recipes.

Bruschetta with Homemade Ricotta, Prosciutto, and Arugula
Every Saturday during spring, summer, and fall, Barry and I walk over for lunch at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene — part antiques market, part junk sale, part craft fair, part artisanal food court. It's also great people-watching; aside from a reliably cute crew of scruffy Brooklynites and international tourists, celebs ranging from Martha Stewart to Michael Stipe are regularly spotted poking through the treasures. But the real action for us is in the well-curated street food: fabulous Salvadorian pupusas (thick corn tortillas stuffed with pork, beans, and cheese), brick-oven pizza, sandwiches of brisket and porchetta, and my favorite, approximated here, from Brooklyn's own Salvatore Ricotta. This is a quick and perfect treat, an ideal use for homemade ricotta. See all bruschetta recipes.
