Pomegranate, Cranberry & Brie Bruschetta

This bright, fresh healthy Cranberry and Pomegranate Bruschetta makes a delightful appetizer but there are tons of other delicious ways to use the topping –
I heard a little birdie say you were looking for something exciting for your appetizer collection. If I was listening correctly, the fine-feathered friend said, you wanted something seasonal, festive, fabulously delicious and super easy to put together. You’re not asking for much, are you? Nope …. not at all. Actually, your wish is my command. I’ve gotcha covered with this wonderful Cranberry and Pomegranate Bruschetta!

This bright, fresh appetizer is all that – and more! Besides being gorgeous as a bruschetta topping it’s also fantastic spooned over a block of cream cheese or a log of goat cheese. Add a sprinkle of finely chopped fresh cilantro or parsley and you’ve got an offering that’s pretty as a picture for all your holiday gatherings and get-togethers. Serve this with crisp crackers or (if you want to keep it light and lean), thickly sliced English cucumber – an amazingly festive presentation!

Oh, and if you’re looking for a way to dress up every-day chicken this crimson relish will do the trick. Use it as a festive, healthy topping for grilled or pan-seared boneless chicken breasts or thighs. With fresh cranberries, pomegranate arils, honey, ginger, cilantro, orange zest and a splash of Sriracha, it’s sweet, spicy and bursting with vibrant flavor.

One last idea, take ¼ cup of the cranberry-pom relish, add 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, a pinch of sea salt and a generous grind of fresh black pepper. Drizzle in 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and now you’ve got a super delicious salad dressing that just screams “holidays”! Toss arugula, field greens or fresh spinach with a splash of the pretty dressing. Add a few orange slices and maybe a handful of toasted walnuts,voilá! A super salad everyone will be raving about!

The relish recipe makes a generous portion but it keeps well (a week to 10 days) and having it stashed in the fridge means a beautiful, delicious holiday appetizer, a lovely garnish for a meal or a super sensational salad. All of these are literally, just minutes away! And I have a feeling, that once you try this delicious relish, you’ll find a myriad of other fun things to do with it.
