Smoked Salmon Bruschetta

George Levinthal


Here's a quick and easy appetizer that can be put together in minutes and enjoyed by everyone. Salmon caviar is relatively inexpensive and adds an elegant topping to the dish. I don't add any extra salt since the lox, capers and caviar all are salty. Make plenty because they'll go fast. I made this just for my wife and I but it's great for a dinner party with friends and family.
