Savory tarts, often called crostadas, look sophisticated and fancy but are quite easy to make.
I think they make the perfect dish to serve to guests as a large part can be made ahead and there is always a wow factor when I serve one.
This tart is an homage to what's in season right now: cabbage, fennel and apples.
The apples lend just enough sweet to a savory and rich tart. The thyme in the crust is earthy and subtle but not to be left out.
Serve this with a simple mixed greens salad and a fancy cocktail.
