Ingredients

Bruschettas:
Tomato Caper Topping with Lemon:
Yellow Tomato Smoked Mozzarella Topping with Olives:

Directions

For the bruschettas, preheat a grill or grill pan. Brush the bread slices lightly on both sides with the olive oil. Lay the bread on the rack or pan, cover, and grill, rearranging the position of the slices on the rack to create attractive markings and turning them once, until they are crisp and lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes total. Remove from the heat and cool. The bread slices can be grilled several hours in advance.

For the tomato caper topping, in a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, basil, capers, oil, lemon zest, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

For the tomato smoked mozzarella topping, in a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, mozzarella, olives, fennel, basil, oil, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Adjust the seasoning on both tomato mixtures. Serve them, accompanied by the grilled bread slices, letting guests top their bruschettas to taste.
