I’m back! I’ve been absent from diversedinners.com for a little while – mia culpa.
I’ve been traveling, like I do, and the break from the kitchen threw my creative senses off for a little bit. Thankfully my travels provided much inspiration, and today’s recipe, fried okra bites with pepper dip, is the result of one recent inspiration.
I love an appetizer or canapé that provides a really interesting opener to a meal or cocktail party. Something that requires little effort, saving your culinary strengths for the main course or more complex bites. Spinach bacon strawberry crostini ticks all those boxes, and because of its mix of meat and fruit, never fails to surprise those who are lucky enough to get a taste.
