Persimmon Crostini

Honey-sweet persimmon pairs beautifully with earthy goat cheese and the mildness of cream cheese in this quick and easy appetizer recipe. Simply toast baguette slices in the oven with olive oil, then top with herbed soft cheese, persimmon slices, pomegranate seeds for a sharp, juicy pop, and finish with a drizzle of honey with rice vinegar. Serve as an elegant holiday appetizer, delicious light lunch, simple afternoon snack, or with a refreshing salad for dinner.
