Ingredients

  • 1 small mango, diced (approx. 1 1/4 cups/300 mL)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp finely diced shallot 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    To make the salsa, mix together mango, peppers, shallot, lime juice, cilantro and seasonings in a bowl. Cover and chill up to a day.

  • Step 2

    To make the crostini, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). In a bowl, toss sliced baguette with olive oil. Arrange slices in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Toast in oven 5 to 6 min. or until tops are golden. Cool.

  • Step 3

    Top crostini with Brie and salsa.

Tip

Making the salsa ahead saves time and results in a more flavourful mix. Pre-toasted crostini can be stored overnight in an airtight container.
