Savoury Cherry Bruschetta

Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - Serve these with drinks as hors d'oeuvres - they're a nice contrast to the heavier pre-dinner snacks often served. Or spoon over grilled chicken, duck or pork as a fresh salsa.


  • 6 slices white sandwich bread
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil

Savoury Cherry Bruschetta
Savoury Cherry Topping

  • 1/2 lb (250 g) California cherries
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 2 to 3 tbsp (25 to 45 mL) slivered fresh mint or basil
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt


Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

Trim crusts from bread and discard. Using a rolling pin, roll bread really thinly. Cut each slice into quarters. Lightly oil a 12 mini muffin cup pan. Press a bread square into each muffin cup. Brush bread with half the oil. Bake until a deep golden, 15 to 20 minutes depending on the pan. Repeat with remaining bread squares. Cool completely on a rack. These can be made up to a week in advance and stored in an airtight container.

Pit cherries then coarsely chop. Place in a bowl. Finely grate lime peel over cherries, then squeeze 2 tsp (10 mL) lime juice over top. Stir in oil, garlic and jalapeno. Just before serving toss with mint, green onion and salt.

Spoon a heaping teaspoon (7 mL) cherry mix into bread cups. Garnish each with a tiny sprig of mint if you wish.
