Mezze: Spring Crostini

spring-crostini_main

The farmers markets are open again in Boston. HOORAY! There is so much to celebrate now that we have locally grown, fresh produce around every corner. It is such a wonderful time of the year. I love checking out the different markets around town. They have many of the same vendors, yet each still has its own unique feel.

I picked up a beautiful bunch of radishes the other day to try out a new recipe. Inspired again by the colorful pages of Ripe, I made a few adaptations to a recipe featuring radishes to create this crostini. This makes for a simple and deliciously light mezze – one that I bet would pair nicely with whatever bbq plans you have for this weekend! –jacque

Ingredients

1 French baguette

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

1 bunch radishes

1/2 cup cilantro

zest from 1/2 lemon

salt, to taste

Directions

1. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick rounds and toast.

2. Allow the bread to cool and then spread with butter.

3. Top with radishes, olives, and cilantro.

4. Finish each crostini with a few slices of lemon zest and your favorite salt.
