Hi friends and happy Wednesday! I wanted to reshare this Cranberry Crostini recipe that I posted last year during the holidays because it was such a hit (and I have already made it for a party this year!)
Here’s what I’ll say about holiday appetizers: focus on using high-quality and real ingredients (i.e. quit with the low-fat, sugar-free options!) and make it look visually appealing. Red is one of the most beautiful foods to use in cooking dishes, and it’s definitely fitting for the holidays. People eat with their eyes first, so if your dish looks beautiful, people will be more likely to grab a nibble!
The best part of this dish? It’s easy. Like, crazy easy. Perfect for anyone feeling a little overwhelmed this holiday season.
I found the recipe on the Saveur site – it’s a great resource for cooking inspiration. The recipe calls for a subtle hint of orange zest and juice, honey for some sweetness, and sea salt to tie all the flavors together. It’s absolutely delish. And the thyme adds an interesting and unexpected kick to the entire creation. Plus, it’s totally dietitian approved 😉
Enjoy! Make sure to send me any photos of your creations! XO
