Tips  

Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats from olives may help lower blood cholesterol. But fats are high in calories so keep portions small.

Instead of letting guests assemble the bruschetta, you can spoon the seafood mixture onto the toasts and garnish each with a sprig of fresh mint.

Toast slices for bruschetta up to 1 day ahead. Cool and store in airtight container at room temperature.

You can substitute 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or basil rather than using 1 tablespoon each of chives, basil and mint.
