PARTNER POST: Get ready to feed a holiday crowd with appetizer recipes paired perfectly with food-friendly Cavit wines.
A little sweet and a little savory, these crostini are the perfect appetizer to devour all winter long, with a glass of Pinot Grigio, of course.
I don’t know what I love most about this recipe – the goat cheese, the sparkling cranberries, or the fact that it meant I got to work with wine for the day (always a win-win). The best part though might just be that these crostini are probably one of the EASIEST appetizers you could possibly make, and totally perfect for winter/holiday entertaining.
We’ve definitley got a little bit of a savory-sweet thing going on here, combining tangy goat cheese and toasted walnuts with sweet-but-tart sugared cranberries and a drizzle of honey. Depending on the bread you use, you can make it a little more or less sweet; a cranberry-walnut bread will lend a little more sweetness, but a walnut or plain levain will tone it down a bit if that’s your preference. Either way, it’s a perfect match for one of my new go-to white wines, Cavit Pinot Grigio. The bright, crisp cranberries and creamy chèvre pair perfectly with its clean, light, and fruity taste —> a perfect little bundle for all your holiday parties.
For another easy holiday appetizer, try these lamb bites. Recipe here.Print
