Goodbye to Summer: Crostini Party

Crostini--"little toasts" in Italian--are my go to appetizer. They are the perfect base for showcasing simple ingredients and favorite flavor combinations. The seasons are about to change so I wanted to give summer's bounty a final hurray. Some of these are repeat offenders...I can never get enough of that fig jam, cheese & mint combo! To make crostini, slice a baguette 1/4" thick, brush with olive oil and baked on a cookie sheet @ 375 degrees for ten minutes, or until lightly brown. Top as desired.
The Menu


ricotta, arugula, peaches, balsamic syrup

early girl tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, garlic olive oil

fig jam, sharp white cheddar, mint

lemony tahini smashed garbanzo beans, sun dried cherry tomato

crema mexicana, corn, chili powder, lime, cilantro

spicy basil pesto, grated zucchini, pecorino, walnut

smashed avocado, red pepper flakes, lemon, olive oil

roasted artichoke spread, sauteed peppers, golden raisins, parsley
