Another form of bruschetta, this is a great low calorie and healthy appetizer. Serve bruschetta-style, on toasted French bread and topped with Parmesan cheese. Caponata can be frozen in resealable bags or in pint jars.

Can't beat the flavour of this sauce. I added some capers and olives to keep it close to the traditional recipe. This is a rich sauce which is even better the next day. This is also a nice side dish for a burrata or fresh mozzarella. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
