Rating: (1 rated)
  • 1/2 pound zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 pound yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 small red onion, slivered
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and coarse black pepper
  • 1 baguette (18 inches long) cut crosswise into 24 equal slices
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Sunflower Seed – Cream Cheese Pesto (page 000)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

On a baking sheet, toss the zucchini, yellow squash, and red onion with 2 tablespoons of the oil, the oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Roast, tossing once halfway through, until tender, 13 to 15 minutes.

Spread the baguette slices on a separate baking sheet, drizzle them with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake until lightly golden and crunchy, 6 to 8 minutes.

In a small saucepan, heat the balsamic vinegar over medium-high heat. Once it boils, reduce the heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally to keep from burning, until the liquid has become thick and syrupy, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately remove the pan from the heat.

To assemble the crostini, spread each toasted baguette slice with the pesto and arrange them on a platter. Evenly sprinkle the roasted vegetables over the crostini and then top with the crumbled feta. Drizzle the entire platter with the balsamic reduction.
