Katie Reicher, executive chef of Greens restaurant in San Francisco, brings us this Italian American-inspired artichoke bruschetta recipe. If you can find fresh baby artichokes, they are excellent here: Trim them down to their tender hearts, then steam in a steamer basket over medium heat until tender, about 20 minutes. Frozen artichoke hearts, tossed with oil and salt and roasted at 400°F for about 35 minutes, also work wonderfully.

  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped basil leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped green olives
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped parsley leaves
