The Show Stopper – Apple & Red Pepper Bruschetta

So, I blogged this recipe a year ago, but honestly, I feel like it didn’t do it justice enough. After a year of making this recipe for each and every party I’ve been to, I can safely say that this dish is a show stopper! Crunchy, fresh, delicious, and versatile, there’s no better recipe to bring to a party!

This super easy recipe takes 10 minutes to make, minimal baking, and a guaranteed 100% success rate. Give it a try and bring it to your next party, and you’ll be the star of the night!

For a single batch, you will need

  • 1 green apple, finely diced
  • ½ a bell pepper, finely diced
  • A handful of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped red onion, adjust to taste
  • 2 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. of honey
  • Brie cheese
  • Baguette

Super simple, takes about 5 minutes tops. Chop and mince your apple, bell pepper, red onion and cilantro, and put in a bowl. Stir together the cider vinegar, olive oil and honey, and pour it onto the chopped ingredients. Toss to coat.

This is great as is, but better with the next steps. You can prep it in advance (keeps for 2 days in the fridge) and to have it ready for whatever the occasion.

Next step is the fun step. Slice your baguette into little rounds, plop them on a baking sheet, top with a spoonful of the apple and pepper bruschetta. Slice your Brie cheese…not too thick but not too thin… Top the bruschetta with the Brie, then place the baking sheet under the broiler for about a minute… Make sure you check them often so you don’t accidentally burn them.

You can serve it cold as a salsa as well! A great addition to the mix is cubed mango: it pairs nicely with the coriander and the red onion.

  1. Sounds absolutely delicious! I’ve never seen this kind of bruschetta before but I can’t imagine how good it must taste with the cheese! Apples and melted cheese make an awesome flavor combo

    • Definitely! I’ve made this countless times, and the longest it’s lasted was 10 minutes. It’s so easy to make, and you’re right, apple and cheese together is heaven!
