Sun-Dried Tomato & Cheese Appetizers

Posted on: March 12, 2011

Ever been in a pinch for a quick appetizer or dish to take to an event or someone’s home?

I had a meeting over with the awesome folks at Crescent Foods and decided I wanted to bring something. Last time it was my banana blueberry loaf, but this time I wanted to bring someting savory so I decided on this super quick appetizer.

I used what was on hand: fresh herbs, multi-grain bread, cream cheese, mozzarella (or my homemade yogurt cheese ) & a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil.

Easy. Quick. Healthy. Halal.

What’s your idea for a quick and healthy appetizer? Do share!Serves 20

Ingredients

2 cups spring salad mix

10 pieces whole grain bread, toasted

8-10 roasted garlic cloves

4 ounces cream cheese

¼ pound fresh mozzarella

40 whole pieces sun dried tomatoes in olive oil

40 anchovy filets, optional

Freshly chopped cilantro, for garnish

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Clean, dry and place the spring salad mix all over the serving platter.

Toast the bread and cut into quarters. Rub a bit of roasted garlic on each piece.

Slice the mozzarella into thin pieces. Spread the cream cheese on each piece. Next, add one small slice of mozzarella to each piece.

Shake off any excess oil and place a sun dried tomato on top of each slice of mozzarella. Add anchovy filet, if desired.

Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and finish with a drizzle of oil. Hold each piece down with a toothpick in the center of the tomato.
