Add these quick & easy Pomegranate Crostini with Ricotta and Mint to your party menu as either a festive appetizer or mildly sweet dessert!

These super easy Pomegranate Crostini with Ricotta and Mint can be served as either a festive appetizer or slightly sweet dessert.

With the countdown to Christmas underway, no one has a lot of time to invest in fancy finger foods right now. Yet we still have a calendar full of social commitments. Unless you’re one of the lucky few who were asked to bring wine for your next party, I’m guessing you’re going to need to make something to bring – and fast. These mildly sweet Pomegranate Crostini with Ricotta and Mint are equally at home on an appetizer buffet or at the dessert table and require just a handful of ingredients.

Who doesn’t love a dish that is versatile and almost effortless? 

Toasted bread slices are spread with a creamy ricotta base. Cluster rosy pomegranate seeds on top of the crostini with ricotta and drizzle with honey. Just a sprinkle of fresh mint is all that’s needed for these beauties to be perfectly festooned for the season.

Tip: If your gathering is informal, place all the ingredients on the table and have guests construct their own crostini. If it’s a more formal affair, it will only take a few minutes to assemble the crostini and plate them yourself.

Let the celebrating commence!
