The following “Kid Friendly Crostini With Turkey and Tomatoes” is a sponsored post on behalf of the Produce for Kids campaign with Publix. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Looking for an easy lunch or appetizer made for both adults and kids? If so, I have a Kid Friendly Crostini With Turkey and Tomatoes that is super simple to put together and fun for the entire family.
Before I could get started with this recipe though, I first needed to head up to my local Publix to pick up a few items from the produce department and bakery.
However, I actually had 2 great reasons to visit the grocery store!
Did you know that Produce for Kids and Publix have teamed up now through June 27 to support local Feeding America® food banks?
What this means is, that by purchasing from select brands in store, a donation will be made by sponsors to support local food pantries.
The participants of this campaign include: CMI Orchards Hero Snack Size Gala Apples, Coast Tropical Mangos, Del Monte® Fruit Naturals® Cups, Driscoll’s® Raspberries & Blackberries, Fresh Express® Packaged Salads, Lakeside Produce Colored Bell Peppers & Long Hothouse Cucumbers, Marie’s® Dressings, SUNSET® Tomatoes on the Vine, Beefsteak and Campari® Tomatoes, Mission Avocados, RealSweet® Vidalia® Onions, and Wonderful® Pistachios & Almonds.
Needless to say, I picked up recipe ingredients from a few of these sponsors to support this worthwhile initiative.
What you will need to also make this Kid Friendly Crostini With Turkey and Tomatoes!
Thinly Sliced Turkey
Package of SUNSET® Campari Tomatoes
Marie’s® Caesar Dressing and Dip
First thinly slice the baguette. I made the pieces around a 1/2 inch to 3/4 of and inch. (Plus you can skip the toasting to keep the bread softer.)
Next up, slice the turkey into halves according to how many pieces of Crostini you will be making. I made 12 pieces in total, so I cut 6 slices in half.
Then, slice each Campari Tomato into 3 to 4 slices.
To assemble, first fold a piece of turkey small enough to fit the crostini and place it on top of the baguette slice.
Then add a dab of the Marie’s® Caesar Dressing, and top with a slice of the tomato.
If you have a kiddo that is not always a fan of dressings, simply leave off the Caesar on a few pieces. The turkey and tomato both pair well together.
I actually served these Crostini With Turkey and Tomatoes with Driscoll’s Blackberries and the kiddos loved them.
Be sure to look for Produce for Kids signage in the produce department from now until to June 27 to support the participating brands giving back to your local food banks.
