Why not bruschetta for dessert? Fresh fruit and crunchy walnuts partner up to make a healthy but craveable topping for toasted pound cake. Chef Curry developed this recipe for a competition among Sysco chefs, and it’s a winner as a sweet ending to a meal or an anytime snack. The whipped cream is optional!
