This colourful and easy appetizer is the one you want to serve this summer for guests on your patio with drinks.



  1. Crostini: Brush baguette slices with oil and place on preheated greased grill over medium heat. Grill, turning once for about 4 minutes or until light golden on both sides. Remove to a platter. When cool enough to handle, rub one side of crostini with garlic; set aside.
  2. Toss asparagus with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Place tomatoes into a large piece of foil and toss with remaining oil, salt and pepper. Place both on grill, turning asparagus occasionally for 7 minutes or until golden and tomatoes have softened. Remove asparagus to cutting board and cut into thirds.
  3. Spread crostini with cream cheese. Top with grilled asparagus and tomatoes. Sprinkle each with basil before serving.
