I love crostinis, finger food, appetizer party food. But it is so rare to be served such a thing! I created a dinner based on this! There are a lot of steps but I promise the prep shouldn’t take longer then ten minutes and the cooking time is another 15 minutes tops. (Prepare all the ingredients in advance so you can do one thing after the other!)
I know there are a lot of ingredients in this dish that people usually stay away from, so I decided to get them all over with at once. If you buy roquefort cheese from a cheese shop, buy a piece with the smallest amount of blue in it to ease your way in. I promise this salad is crunchy and delicious, try it once and you will find it delicious and be so proud of yourself!
This salad is filling, refreshing and bursting with flavor. If you are not a cilantro lover you can leave it out. The key here is to use the freshest ingredients. If you are looking for high quality olive oil, Galilee Green is a premium boutique blend of unfiltered, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil shipped directly to your home from Israel. To order some of this special olive oil for yourself go to www.GalileeGreen.com
Pickling things can be so fun! Buy pretty little jars and make some for your friends! This mixture goes great in salads, on grilled fish or chicken or just as a condiment on the table. It lasts up to a week in your fridge but tastes the best the day of or the next day.
This salad is a full meal, filled with protein, calcium, whole wheat carbs and so much more. Feel free to play around with the raw ingredients and to leave out the olives or bean sprouts if you wish!
