Honeyed Goat Cheese Crostini with Roasted Grapes

March 5, 2015

Author Notes: This is one of my favorite go-to appetizers when entertaining. The combination of the tart grapes with the sweet and tangy honey infused goat cheese is always is a crowd pleaser. I use a beautiful Yemeni honey which is the best honey I've ever come across. It's rich, smooth and unlike any honey I have tried. Noreen
