This warm Brie with tangy blueberry salsa is a simple but delicious appetizer for cocktail parties, get-togethers and potlucks.
1 cup blueberries
1 ripe peach, diced
1/2 jalapeno to 1 jalapeno, diced
1 tbsp. chopped mint
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp. fresh ginger
1 tbsp. honey
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 small Brie wheel (about 5-inches)
Baguette, sliced, for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the salsa: combine blueberries, peaches, jalapeno, mint, lime juice, ginger, honey, and salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. Let stand for 15 minutes at room temperature before serving to let flavours marry.
Add Brie to baking sheet and warm in oven, about 2 to 5 minutes. You just want the Brie to warm and soften slightly. Be careful, if left in the oven too long, the Brie will melt too much and start to ooze.
Top warm Brie with salsa and serve with baguette slices.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
