Crostini with goat cheese, apples and pomegranate are a wonderful appetizer for a cocktail party or just having friends over for drinks. Simple with a bit of a surprise.
We are having friends for dinner next week and I wanted to experiment with an appetizer that I could make in advance since the main dish needs to be prepared right before serving. After learning how to seed a pomegranate so easily from Carmelita last fall, I have been searching for ways to use them.
This recipe not only uses a pomegranate but it’s slightly spicy, sweet and savory all in 2 bites. It’s not too messy and you can eat them with your fingers. You can adjust all the ingredients to your taste, pears might be a good substitute for apples. Just don’t leave off the honey. You need it to hold the walnuts and pomegranate on the crostini.
These are so much better than the typical crostini I have made in the past. It could be the garlic or pepper flakes, but my favorite part is the pomegranate on top
