Goat cheese, honey, and walnut crostini

If you know me, you know my love for bread and cheese. But not just any kind of bread and cheese, the good kind! I recently went to a local cafe that specializes in different kinds of toast. The one that I ordered had goat cheese, honey, and lavender (SO GOOD!). Since then, I've been hooked on goat cheese! While some people bag on goat cheese saying "it tastes like a goat smells" (spoiler alert to all those who haven't tried it yet... it doesn't) I absolutely love the distinct flavor it has!

And for me, adding nuts to a recipe is an automatic win! For this recipe, the sweetness of the honey with crunch and saltiness of the walnuts is truly the perfect combination. 

This recipe for Goat Cheese, Honey and Walnut Crostini is so easy to make it's insane! Only requiring six ingredients (five of which most people already have in their homes), this recipe is perfect to make for a get-together with friends or when you want to have a fancy little lunch. 

So do yourself (and your taste buds) a favor and make this delicious recipe!
