Roasted Grape Crostini

Share

The sound of a Roasted Grape Crostini might sound strange to some, but to me, it’s mouth wateringly good. Instead of using a more common ingredient such as cherry tomatoes, I decided to switch things up and roast purple grapes instead. Toss either red or green grapes, I prefer red, with sherry or rice vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and freshly grated orange zest and roast in the oven until flavorful.

Then, portion onto toasted French baguette pieces and top with Manchego or Romano cheese and fresh basil leaf slices.

To make Roasted Grape Crostini, you will need the following ingredients:
