Soft Burrata Cheese on Crostini with Crab, Smoked Salmon & Avocado

These beautiful bites are a perfect way to begin a special evening. Soft cheese, creamy avocado, indulgent fresh crab... if that's not decadent, we don't know what is! Even better: they only take moments to put together.

Ingredients: Print Ingredients

- 8 ounces burrata cheese - make your own or buy from a gourmet cheese counter
- 8 slices good-quality bread (we like Acme sourdough)
- 4 ounces smoked salmon
- 4 ounces fresh crabmeat
- 4 slices avocado
- 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
- Coarsely ground salt
- Extra virgin olive oil


Brush bread lightly with olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Toast beneath the broiler for 30 seconds -1 minute, or just until golden brown and crisp on top. Remove and cool.

How To Serve:

Lay four crostini on a serving platter; atop each, place one piece of smoked salmon, followed by crab. Top with avocado slice; sprinkle with green onions. Place burrata on the serving platter, and drizzle both the crostini and cheese with olive oil; sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with extra crostini.
