Blue Cheese and Arugula Crostini

Original recipe


  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon mustard
    juice from 1/2 a lemon
    A pinch of brown sugar
    3 cups arugula
    one small shallot, thinly sliced
    12 1/2-inch-thick slices cranberry-walnut bread
    3 oz. strong blue cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and brown sugar; whisk until combined.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the arugula and shallot. Add the dressing and toss to coat.
  4. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast for 5 minutes, or until lightly crisped. Remove from oven.
  5. When the bread has cooled slightly but is still warm, transfer to a serving platter. Distribute blue cheese evenly over toasts, spreading a liberal layer over each.
  6. Evenly divide the dressed arugula mixture on top of the toasts.

Serves 12.
