One of my favorite things to serve for an appetizer at parties and get togethers are crostinis (aka bruschettas). You can call me the “crostini queen” as my sister once said at a family reunion 😉 . I just think they’re so much fun to serve and beautiful! I like to serve pretty things especially when it comes to appetizers. How about you?
The key for a good crostini is fresh ingredients but also keeping things simple. You don’t want complicated arrangements during occasions when you’re usually pressed for time. I have partnered with SweeTango® Apples to share with you this delicious and easy to make recipe. SweeTango apples are best eaten uncooked (not recommended for baking) because the flavor is very intense. With these crostinis, the apple perfectly balances out all of the other ingredients.
I’m running a giveaway with the awesome folks at SweeTango® Apples and one lucky winner will be chosen on Tuesday October 27th, 2015. Don’t miss out! See below how to enter the giveaway and for more details.
