Just loved these crostini, Nif! Easy to throw together and so tasty - DS, who turns his nose up at such things (picky eater), went shopping for 'world tour' ingredients with me, so when these were prepared as a 'light' lunch for DH and I, DS asked if he could have some 'world tour' food, too. And them came back twice more...Shocked, is right! Thanks so much for sharing a great , Nif!
