Summer is just around the corner. The days are lasting longer, the beaches are open—and kitchens are being deserted. Yes, it’s the time of year to give the ovens and pot roasts a break in favor of barbecuing outdoor specialties. It may come as a surprise, but Italian culinary flavors are made for the season of sun.
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Whether you are in the mood for meat, seafood, or vegetables, there is an Italian dish that will suit your outdoor grilling tastes. Like any good dining experience, the key is to start with the perfect appetizers.

? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? A great choice to begin with is the simple, but delicious, Grilled Bread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Bruschetta Grigliata). The flavored olive oil and bread, grilled to golden, are a great way to make mouths water and a simple but elegant appetizer.

? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Olive oil flavored with garlic, fresh ? basil, or rosemary.
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 1 loaf of crusty Italian bread cut into 1-inch thick slices
