Crostini with Cherry Tomatoes and Mozzarella


For this month's International Food Challenge, we are exploring Campania cuisine of Italy. Campania is a region in southern Italy, well known for their pizza, pasta and cheese, specially mozzarella cheese. Fresh vegetables also play an important role in the Campania cuisine. Priya Suresh of Priya's Versatile Recipes, host for this month, has suggested four wonderful recipes from this region. I choose to make the simple crostini with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella.

Crostini is an Italian appetizer meaning little toasts.  Crostini are made by thinly slicing bread, typically ciabattas,  and toasting or grilling it so that it becomes crispy. The slices can be drizzled with olive oil, herbs and salt or a sauce and then served plain, or they can be dressed with an assortment of toppings and used as appetizers or garnishes with foods such as soups.The toppings may include a variety of different cheeses, meats, and vegetables. This is a simple crostini recipe with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella which makes a great snack.
