Plum Bruschetta with Blue Cheese








Last week-end I visited a new Farmer's market in Ottawa. Since plums are in season I bought two baskets. Back at home I created a Plum Bruschetta with Blue Cheese as an appetizer. The tangy blue cheese complements the saltiness of the prosciutto and the sweetness of the plums. It's a simple appetizer that your guests will love. Make these at your next party!
