Arugula Apple Tartine

This is yet another tartine which I made create back on March 2018. I am still using the same cheese spread but instead of chili flakes, I used honey instead. Be sure to use a good quality pure honey. There are a lot of "fake" honey out there; some are even selling at high prices. You can watch some YouTube tutorials on how to differentiate between real and fake honey. Anyway, I tried to make an apple rose, but failed epically. This is what I ended up with.



Of cos, you don't have to go thru' the trouble in make any apple roses. The salad is already good enuff on it's own. Apple and arugula really compliment each other very well. That honey sorta elevate the flavors up a notch. Plus that cheese on toast, you get sweetness, savory, tartness and peppery. I really hope you will give this recipe a try.
