This tart is one of my favorite simple appetizers. I found this recipe years ago in Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food magazine (March/April 2003). Puff pastry is an easy base for impromptu tarts like this one, but I prefer to use homemade tart dough. I also prefer pencil-thin asparagus instead of medium or thick asparagus.
Kale chips are simple to prepare and a delicious, healthy snack. I made the recipe below with Tuscan kale, and served sprinkled with organic cayenne pepper.
Crostini are simple to prepare and the topping variations are endless. Tonight, I spread a smoked salmon mixture on grilled slices of a sesame seed baguette. I recommend using wild salmon, which is more flavorful than the widely available farmed variety.
