Recipe: Goat Cheese, Cucumber & Tomato Achaar Crostini February 05 2014

This recipe and photos come to us from our friend Tom at Little Island Kitchen. Little Island Kitchen is an online marketplace for your favorite small batch and specialty foods and where you'll also find Brooklyn Delhi available for sale.

Tom has been getting mighty creative with our tomato achaar as you can see from this post.  We thought it would be fun to feature his crostini recipe, which looks amazing and is really quick to pull together with a baguette, goat cheese, avocado and of course us! This is the perfect appetizer to serve at a party or bring to a potluck.
