Method Prep:15min › Ready in:15min
In a medium bowl, combine the artichokes, tomatoes, olives, parsley, oil and garlic with salt and pepper to season. Cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
Cut the crusty end off the ciabatta, then cut 8 slices, each about 1cm thick. Toast the bread on both sides.
Just before serving, divide the artichoke mixture equally among the toast slices. Serve immediately
Crostini, like bruschetta, are cut from good French or Italian breads. Crostini are usually thinner, about 1cm thick, but you could cut the bread slightly thicker to make bruschetta. Smaller crostini are easiest to eat as a nibble with drinks whereas the slightly larger bruschetta make a more generous first course.
