Crostini with whipped goat cheese and olives is a fun, easy and impressive little snack that your entire family will love! With California Ripe Olives, these little bug bites are sure to impress!
Food is fun! I honestly never get bored with food because there is always a new recipe or flavor combination to try. Making food fun for kids is a great way to expose them to new foods or simply enjoy the food that they already love. I’m not very artistic, but I love having a little fun with food. I combined some of my favorite ingredients and created the perfect little appetizer or snack. Whipped goat cheese, bread, basil and California Black Ripe Olives create fun little “bug bites.”
California Black Ripe Olives are versatile, kid-friendly, and perfect for the back to school season. They provide a pop of color, texture and flavor to meals. I love layering them over pizza and salads. I even love creating fun after-school snacks like this whipped goat cheese crostini with olives. This fun little snack couldn’t be any easier to make. Just slice a few olives and arrange them over the top of the goat cheese to resemble a spider, beetle or other bug.
You can even use sundried tomato whipped goat cheese or crackers instead of the crostini.
California Ripe Olives are kid-friendly and the perfect option for creating tasty and creative food art for the back to school season. These little bug bites would also be perfect for an upcoming Halloween party.
California Ripe Olives are grown on over 1,000 multigenerational family farms that crisscross the warm insland valleys of California and processed by two family-owned canneries. I always have a few cans sitting in my pantry ready for a fun little bug creation.
