Remember the strawberry brushetta I shared a while back? This is a very similar concept–except with cherries. I made it to bring to my good friend Heather’s (hi Heather!) house for a summer barbeque. I thought they came out pretty tasty—nice and refreshing for the summer. A word of wisdom I will leave you with—-this recipe called for jicama. I had never used jicama before and the labels were wrong at the Giant, so I bought a big thing of ginger instead. You probably don’t want to cut up big pieces of ginger for these! I ended up not using jicama. Maybe next time…
Enjoy! and thanks for reading.
1 cup fresh sweet cherries, pitted and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped jicama (I omitted)
1 medium scallion, sliced
1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
4 ox. soft goat cheese
18 baguette slices, lightly toasted
Combine the cherries, jicama, scallion and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
On each baguette, spread a layer of goat cheese. Top with the cherry mixture.
