Bruschetta seems like a trendy, modern appetizer, but it actually dates back to 15th century Italy when hunks of bread were rubbed with garlic and olive oil, topped with seasonings and heated to a crisp over open flames on a grill. This updated version gets its rich, smoky flavor from sundried tomatoes and feta cheese, with chopped cashews sprinkled on for added crunch. Use storebought Italian bread to save time!
