  • 1 baguette, sliced into ½ inch slices (you want 8 to 10 slices)
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • garlic powder for sprinkling
  • 11 ounces goat cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon snipped chives, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon
  • pickled onions, for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the baguette and place the slices on a baking sheet. Drizzle them all over with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and garlic powder. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.
  • While the bread bakes, make the goat cheese. You can also make this ahead of time! Add the goat cheese, lemon zest, garlic, parsley, basil, dill, chives, lemon juice and a big pinch of salt and pepper into a food processor. Blender until combined and smooth, scraping the sides and the bottom as you go to combine everything. This stays great in the fridge for a few days.
  • When the bread is done, spread the slices with the goat cheese. Top with a piece of smoked salmon. Top with extra fresh herbs, a sprinkle of cracked black pepper and pickled onions. Serve!
