Grilled Bruschetta with Crab and Grape Salsa



  • 1 cup fresh crab meat, free of shell fragments (approx. 1/2 lb. wt.)
  • 1 cup green California seedless grapes, rinsed and sliced in half
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
  • 1 pinch red chili flakes
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped (approx. 3/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Seasoned Oil

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 loaf French baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick


In a mixing bowl, toss together salsa ingredients. Set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together seasoned oil ingredients. Brush onto slices of bread. Preheat gas grill to medium, then grill bread slices until toasted, about 2 minutes on each side. Place on serving tray and top with spoonfuls of salsa.


Salsa can be prepared a couple of hours ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to use. Bread slices can also be toasted in preheated 400 F oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
