So, I’m pretty big into Snapchat in terms of following all of the foodies out there. I love to see what people are eating and I also love inspiring others to get cooking with loved ones! One blogger who I thoroughly enjoy is Heidi, better known as, FoodieCrush. You can find her in the links below!

I recently saw her snapping from Austin, Texas for Blogher Food blogging conference. In her snap she was creating these beautiful Nectarine Burrata Crostini’s , I could not help but make them myself, with the addition on prosciutto.

I thought these were a great idea for summer produce, especially basil. Sure, theres nothing better than a fresh hunk of mozzarella with a tomato that has just been plucked from the vine and a handful of ripped basil… but this little bite is just incredible! As you bite in to the crackling toasted baguette, you immediately catch the scent of nectarine and basil. Then, then you taste the salty prosciutto and silky burrata topped with a tangy balsamic reduction. But wait! Is that…… lemon zest..and sugar? It sure is! The citrus expands  your palate and brightens the whole bite into sweet and savory nirvana.

I think these would pair perfectly with a sunset and a glass of crisp bubbly, don’t you?
