Zesty Nectarine & Chevre Crostini

Just a quick bite
Eater rating: 4.5 / 5  4.465

Often no real cooking is required to make a truly tasty treat. We think that’s the case with these refreshing, summery crostini. The crostini were made by layering toasted olive bread, ripe nectarine slices, crumbled chevre, and a sprinkle of a zesty garlic-jalapeno-lime garnish.

A Crostini Recipe, by Amanda
Zesty Nectarine & Chevre Crostini

ripe, fresh nectarines, pitted and thinly sliced
chevre, crumbled
crusty bread, thinly sliced, toasted, & cut into about 2" pieces

For the Garnish:
1 part garlic, minced
1 part jalapeno, finely diced
2 part green onions, thinly sliced
freshly squeezed lime juice, to taste
kosher salt

Make the garnish: Combine the first three garnish ingredients in a bowl. Toss to combine thoroughly. Add kosher salt and lime juice to taste, until seasoned to your liking.

Add a layer of nectarines to a piece of toast. Sprinkle with chevre, then top was a light pinch of the garnish. Repeat this process until you've used up all of your ingredients. Serve immediately after finishing to prevent the nectarines from oxidizing and turning brown before being served. Enjoy!

    Sorry we’ve been absent for so long guys! We’ve been uber-duber busy. I’ve been waiting to use “uber duber” for like 2 months, and now that I’ve used it, it sounds oh-so-cheesy. Anyway, this is just a quick post to let you know we’re still around. Cheers!

    I ended up just using fennel and garlic for the pig, and a little salt and pepper, and XVOO. My plans for an avocado/pineapple plantation are well under way. I’ve got about 13 avocado trees, and if I don’t forget them outside this winter, somewhere around 14 pineapples. I’ll shut dole down in no time!!!!! I would have had more avocado trees but I gave away 6 or 7 last summer.

    hehehe nicole, if i could get my lazy ass to make anything for you guys you’ll be lucky! it probablly seems like i can’t cook at all! 😉

    uh… i’m pretty sure that you’re not really heather… BOBBY! and i want to come and live on your avocado/pineapple plantation! i freaking love pineapples. mmmm they would be great with your whole roasted pig. i am truly sad that i wasn’t around to get an ear or a nose off of that tasty swine! like my dad always said, you can eat every part of the pig except the oink.

    You were right, Amanda! It wasn’t me. How ever did you guess. I know y’all have been uber-duber busy (well, I don’t know that because I haven’t heard from you what you’ve been busy with, but…), but can you at least change the poll question?

    as usu, your recipes are outstanding… this one i took and made somet a lil different. instead of crostini i decided to make a roasted chx panini. i used sourdough bread and buttered the outside as per usu then put the butterflied grilled chx breast, chevre, nectarines, scallions, etc.

    PS: sooooo good! thanks for the idea! 😉
