Crostinis and Kale Salad
- Cooking and Prep: 35 m
- Serves: 8
Make the Crostinis
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place sliced bread on top.
Place the balsamic vinegar and half of the olive oil in a large bowl. Brush the bread with this mixture and stick in oven for six to eight minutes.
Add the peppers and spicy pepper to the large bowl with marinade and mix well.
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Remove peppers from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and sauté for five minutes, stirring periodically. Place cooked peppers in a small jar.
Add the mushrooms to the marinade and mix well. Remove mushrooms to skillet and sauté for three minutes. Place in another jar.
Wipe out the skillet and place back on high heat. Add remaining olive oil and get hot. Sear salmon for three minutes per side. Remove to a plate and shred, then mix with scallions.
Divide the remaining marinade among the pepper and mushroom jars. Add one and a half tablespoons of honey, a half tablespoon thyme and a half teaspoon of salt to each and mix well. Add fresh lemon to the peppers, mushrooms and fish.
Remove bread from oven and place on large cutting board with a variety of toppings: brie with charred red peppers, cream cheese with scallions and salmon, goat cheese and mushroom salad.
After the crostinis are prepared, add kale to a large salad bowl. Add remaining peppers, mushrooms (with their marinade) oranges and scallions to the bowl and mix well.
Another way to serve this is to not dress each piece of bread but to make all the toppings and place them in jars on a cheese board, with the cheeses, some fresh grapes, figs, apples, the breads, olives and dates and it will take this whole experience up a notch!
