Ever been in a pinch for a quick appetizer or dish to take to an event or someone’s home?
I had a meeting over with the awesome folks at Crescent Foods and decided I wanted to bring something. Last time it was my banana blueberry loaf, but this time I wanted to bring someting savory so I decided on this super quick appetizer.
I used what was on hand: fresh herbs, multi-grain bread, cream cheese, mozzarella (or my homemade yogurt cheese ) & a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil.
Easy. Quick. Healthy. Halal.

Sun Dried Tomato & Cheese Appetizers
2 cups spring salad mix
10 pieces whole grain bread, toasted
4 ounces cream cheese
¼ pound fresh mozzarella
40 whole pieces sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
40 anchovy filets, optional
Freshly chopped cilantro, for garnish
Extra virgin olive oil
Clean, dry and place the spring salad mix all over the serving platter.
Toast the bread and cut into quarters. Rub a bit of roasted garlic on each piece.
Slice the mozzarella into thin pieces. Spread the cream cheese on each piece. Next, add one small slice of mozzarella to each piece.
Shake off any excess oil and place a sun dried tomato on top of each slice of mozzarella. Add anchovy filet, if desired.
Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and finish with a drizzle of oil. Hold each piece down with a toothpick in the center of the tomato.
