This is a recipe for mashed pea crostini. These crostinis are great to serve as a snack before a meal or as a starter. They are simple to put together and so refreshing once you pop them in your mouth.

I add a ton of pepper to mine, but you can add as little or as much as you like. Just to dress them up a bit I like to top them with some slices of radish. This mashed pea crostini appetizer screams spring, which I’m totally ready for. Enjoy!
