My second addition to #AppleWeek is an amazing appetizer: Creamy Blue Cheese & Sliced Apple Crostini. This is a simple party food (or Friday night at home with a glass of wine) that’s popping with amazing flavors. It begins with a crusty crostini topped with a blue cheese spread. Adorning the blue cheese layer you’ll find thin slices of Envy apples and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. DELISH!

Envy apples are the perfect addition to this appetizer with a satisfying crunch. Envy apples were born in New Zealand using natural plant-breeding methods, crossing a Braeburn with a Royal Gala apple…they are amazing.

Some tips for making Creamy Blue Cheese & Sliced Apple Crostini: 

  • Place sliced apples in lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • If you prefer a less “crisp” crostini, only broil on one side.
  • I list 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in the recipe for the blue cheese spread, if you like it thinner, use more.
  • You can purchase bottled Balsamic glaze in the vinegar section.
