Elegant appetizer made with toasted baguette slices that are topped with flavorful herb cheese, cucumbers, radishes, smoked salmon, and fresh herbs. 

Happy almost Christmas friends! We are one week away from the most wonderful time of the year and today I wanted to share a really yummy and easy appetizer that is perfect for Christmas or New Years Eve.

Crostini in my opinion is the easiest way to start a party.  Simply start with making the herb cheese spread. It’s a delicious combo of cream cheese + goat cheese, garlic, and fresh dill weed. You’ll want to eat it by a spoonful! And if you’re not a goat cheese lover, don’t worry. The goat cheese is very subtle and compliments the rest of the ingredients in the most perfect way.

Then you’ll want to toast the baguette slices. I used a regular white baguette (from Costco) that I sliced into 22 (1/2-inch thick) slices. Then toasted in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. As it cools, it will crisp up even further.

To assemble, you’ll need thinly sliced radishes, cucumbers, and smoked salmon. Also fresh dill sprigs and don’t forget the black pepper. It adds texture and delicious taste to the crostini. Then just pile on all your toppings onto the toasted baguette slices and let your friends and family go to town!

I went a little heavy on the fresh veggies just because smoked salmon has a very distinct smoky flavor and you’ll want to balance that out with fresh veggies. But the end result is mouthwatering good! You’ll want to add this one to all your holiday parties.
