Recently, my aunt hosted an Easter brunch, and requested a dish from each family member in a potluck sort of deal. I was given charge of bringing an appetizer.
Sure! No problem!
Oh wait….I have zero cooking imagination. My cousin has hosted NYE soirees and similar fêtes with the most delicious and precious little tiny bites. They are always gorgeous and mouth watering, but I haven’t done anything on that scale before.
We had recently vacationed in Galena, IL, and picked up a few delicious goodies in the local foodie shops. One such goodie was an onion horseradish dip. It was BIZARRO DELICIOUS with pretzels during our weekend getaway, but we still had plenty left when we came home and I wasn’t really sure what to do with it. You know, since we don’t do carbs if we can avoid them.
When brunch rolled along, I knew EXACTLY what to do with it.
I whipped the horseradish dip in with cream cheese, topped it on homemade crostini bread, and layered thin cucumber slices and smoked salmon. HEAVEN.
My Salmon Horseradish crostini disappeared at such a furious pace, I was beyond flattered. I admit to only scarfing down 1/4 of them myself…
