ORANGE ZEST RICOTTA CROSTINI BITES

Crostini bites are so versatile & delicious! These yummy small bites can easily complement your dinner dishes! They don’t take long to make & they are fun to serve as starters to a meal or even at your next party! 

I love serving these Orange Zest Ricotta Crostini Bites as appetizers in the fall season. They make great party snack & look festive too.

My husband and I originally lived in Napa, California. You might have heard of this famous wine growing region and travel destination. 

Napa is kind of like it’s own little world & entertaining is definitely high in the culture list. One of the events we would attend at various wineries each year would be the harvest party’s. 

Usually around August and September the grapes would become ready for harvest and the entire city would celebrate! 

A lot of wineries would hold special events, dinners, tastings, blessing of the grape ceremonies and more. Our friends would host dinner party’s and basically everyone would drink wine and snack on appetizers. Sometimes the harvest parties would go so in depth as to serve a four course meal, while others were more of a laid back wine and appetizer set up. Either way they were so fun and brilliant to attend. 

I actually love harvest parties so much and prefer it to the thanksgiving holiday. If hubby and I will be throwing a dinner party in the fall months, it will likely be a harvest dinner party. 

These little crostinis are always a dinner party hit and make a beautiful little presentation!  The pop of flavors between sweet and savory will surely have your guests reaching for more!

I love the colors of this dish! It’s a perfect starter to serve for your autumn party’s, but it tastes great anytime of year! 

This dish just takes a few minutes to prepare and can be served immediately.
