Zaxo Tartines make the perfect lunch or light dinner.  I’m going to do a short series on tartine recipes, so if you have one you would like to share, please send it to me!  judy ALDRIDGE <judy@judyaldridge.com>

Yesterday, Jane and I sampled 3 different types.

This is a curried egg salad on dark rye with thinly sliced radishes and cucumbers.  Don’t forget the mango chutney.   This is Jane’s favorite.   A good recipe for curried egg salad here.

This is our own recipe-Thinly sliced granny smith apples, a scattering of pine nuts, and a slice of sharp cheddar on jalapeno/cheddar toast.  Toast the bread first, add toppings, then put under the broiler till bubbly.

We also made roasted red peppers and goat cheese on a toasted baguette.  So easy, but so good.

Do let me know if you have a favorite tartine of your own!

Jane and I are looking at a home today in Dallas-I’m so nervous, wish us luck!!!

    Oh, that tartine with egg salad is so Danish! I’m from Drnmark and I had it for breakfast this morning (minus the curry, though). You should try slices of potato (boiled) with mayo and chives, or marinated heering with onions (and even eggs), or liver paté with pickled beetroot on dark rye. That makes an oldfashioned and delicious Danish lunch!

    Two of my favorites are:
    1. italian bread, goat cheese, grape tomatoes with a drizzle of a balsamic reduction on top
    2. french bread, a thick slice of brie, fig preserves and a thin slice of prosciutto with a few sprigs of baby arugula on top.

    Lovely photos and smart flavor combinations! I can imagine the cheddar and apple tartine might even be more delicious with the slightest smidge of grainy dijon..
