If you've never made crostini before, it's very easy - just thinly slice a baguette (a day old baguette works wonderfully), brush both sides lightly with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each slice. Arrange the slices on a sheet pan and bake at 375 until lightly golden/toasted. The crostini is delicious on its own, with a salad, topped with a bit of goat cheese and tomato...or with this Cannellini Bean & Caper mixture!
|mise en place: beans, capers, red onion, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper - easy!|
|1/4 of the onion is finely diced and then everything is mixed together|
|as you mix, crush the beans a little to create a cremier sauce|
|cooling my freshly made crostini - yum!|
|I served this at a party and let guests make their own|
Bye for now...
