Easy Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Crostini Recipe

Killer (St. Patrick's Day) App: Smoked Salmon Crostini

If you're looking for a delectable and festive appetizer to serve at a St. Patrick's Day shindig, how about these amazing smoked salmon crostini?

When paired with seasoned goat cheese and crisp toasts, smoked salmon makes a wonderful, elegant, and easy hors d'oeuvre.

The best thing about this bite is it can be served at any time of the day! Get the versatile recipe and
