What a simple, delicious way to enjoy three fundamental ingredients of central Italian cuisine—bread, potent extra virgin olive oil, and red wine (in the form of vinegar and by the glass, if you have a bottle on hand). Day old bread will provide you with the best, chewy-crunchiest results. If you’re going to be grilling dinner anyway, your bruschetta will have no better flavor than if grilled outdoors.
- Preheat an outdoor grill or the broiler.
- If possible, use day old or older bread. Toast six slices (about one inch thick) of artisan-baked white bread under the broiler or on a grill. Rub with garlic, without even peeling garlic. Sprinkle with sea salt. Pour Italian olive oil liberally over the top and serve immediately.
