We’re just going to say it: There’s nothing better than vibrant seasonal flavors on bread.
You’ll definitely want to add this elegant crostini rendition to your holiday hosting repertoire. #ProTip: We definitely recommend the darker, flatter leaves of Tuscan kale (sometimes called lacinato or black kale) for this recipe.
