  • 1/2 pineapple, chopped
  • 1/2 zucchini, chopped
  • 6 slices of baguette, toasted in a skillet with olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana hot sauce

  • To toast the baguette, cut the baguette into 1 /2 inch wide slices. Put a little olive oil in a skillet on medium heat and cook both sides of the baguette, flipping after a couple minutes so the sides are light brown, but not burnt.
  • Arrange your toasted baguette slices on a plate.
  • Begin spooning the pineapple and zucchini mixture on top of the baguette.
  • Drizzle the hot honey over each piece.
  • Sprinkle each piece with queso fresco.
