Ingredients

  • 8 apricots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices baguette
  • Extra olive oil, for brushing the bread
  • 2 to 3 ounces blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted almonds

Directions

Cut apricots in half lengthwise and remove pits. Place apricots in a bowl. Combine olive oil, honey, lime juice, thyme leaves and cayenne and gently toss with apricots.

Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat and grill apricots about 2 minutes to a side or until golden and sizzling. Make a little crostini by brushing bread slices with olive oil and cooking on the grill until lightly toasted.

Arrange 2 apricot halves on each crostini; scatter with cheese and chopped almonds and garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme.
