Serves 6-8


Ingredients


1 cup small red and green grapes, halved

80 grams goat cheese

6 thin slices of prosciutto

½ cup wild rocket leaves

1 tablespoon good quality balsamic vinegar

1 ½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

½ tablespoon honey

Salt and cracked pepper to taste

1 loaf of good quality sourdough bread, thinly sliced (brushed with oil and toasted on a hot pan)


Method

1. Bring a chargrill or heavy-based frypan to medium/high heat.


2. Slice bread thinly on an angle and brush with olive oil on both sides.


3. Place bread slices in batches on hot pan and press down with a spatula.


4. Once golden and crisp, turn and repeat process, removing crisped bread slices onto a platter.


5. To make the dressing, lightly whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper to taste, set aside.


6. Place a half slice of prosciutto on each grilled bread slice. Top with a little goats cheese, a few wild rocket leaves, and 2-3 green and red whole grapes.


7. Drizzle honey and balsamic dressing over the crostini and serve immediately.


Tip: You can also grill the bread slices in advance, store everything separately in air-tight containers and compile once at your picnic or BBQ.
