<p>Capture that beautifully fruity and spicy scent that comes around the fall and winter holiday season into a gorgeous topping. The best part of this apple and cranberry salad recipe is when it’s placed on a warm crostini with melted Reserve Series™ Aged Italian Blend, and the wonderful sweetness of the fruit and savory flavors come together into a bite-size morsel.</p>

  1. Brush bread slices with 1-1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil; place on a baking or cookie sheet. Sprinkle cheese over bread. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice the apples. Cut slices into julienne (matchstick size) strips. If cherries are large, cut into strips. Combine apples, cherries, remaining 3 tablespoons oil and lemon juice; toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Arrange warm crostini on 4 serving plates; top with salad.
