Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup chopped black olive
  • 1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

Method

In skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat; fry onion, green pepper, garlic and oregano until softened, about 3 minutes. Add olives, sun-dried tomatoes and vinegar; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is evaporated, about 4 minutes. Stir in parsley. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.)

Cut polenta into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Cut each in half; place on greased or parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush with remaining oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil until edges are golden, about 5 minutes.

Spoon heaping 1 tsp (5 mL) relish onto each polenta piece. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
