Expert 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.
