Smoked Salmon Mousse Crostini
If you enjoy smoked salmon, you will love this easy smoked salmon mousse. Whips together in minutes, great for appetizers or snacking. If you want to go upscale for a party, use a piping bag with a star tip. Serve over crostini or with raw vegetables on the side. Its creamy complexation is the perfect partner for our refreshing PEJU Sauvignon Blanc.
