Rice Cake Bruschetta

I never thought I would like rice cakes, but when they are topped with cottage cheese and bruschetta-style salsa with garlic and olives they are very tasty and make a substantial light snack. You can eat these cold or broil them for a few minutes to char the edges and heat up the toppings a bit. If you do broil them, put a thin slice of ham or turkey or cucumber under the cottage cheese or the rice cake will go a bit soggy in the middle.
