Easter dinner was a great success, and along with the satisfaction of knowing your family is content, you also have a ton of leftover ham and vegetables. Why not use them for brunch or dinner over the weekend? Of course, you'll want to touch up your leftovers to turn them into something completely new, like these delicious and simple crostinis. This is just one of many Easter ideas to help you turn leftovers-even chocolates-into unique dishes that will continue to delight your family. And to give your presentation a pop of color, garnish your crostinis with cherry tomatoes, herbs and a few slices of kumquat. We call them "naranjitas chinas," in Peru, and they're often served as desserts, in chifas, in syrups or as candied fruit. Of course you can also eat them raw, thinly sliced-there's no need to peel them. Just make sure to get rid of the large seeds, which are similar to those found in regular oranges. Don't let your Easter leftovers be mere leftovers! Transform them into a dish with plenty of flavor and texture. Let me know how it goes. MORE + LESS -
