Shallot Goat Cheese Spring Vegetable Crostini

Spring Crostini

We were invited to Easter Dinner at our friends home and were asked to make an appetizer. 

To some, this may seem like an easy task. But for me, I would not decide on what an appropriate appetizer for Easter would be. 

I decided on a crostini, because it is durable and would act as a blank canvas! If you follow me on Snapchat if have already seen me making these live! Join me for all the first look at all my recipes! 🙂

I also wanted to feature spring vegetables. I read about a dip using caramelized shallots in NY Eats and I wanted to turn it into a spread. And so, my shallot goat cheese and spring crostini were born 😀
