(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.
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.
