Directions:
  • To make tomato relish, in a medium bowl, mix together chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, salt and pepper. Let stand for at least 15 minutes to marinate.
  • To make filling, in a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon juice, capers and dill paste and mix until well combined.
  • To prepare the toasts, slice the baguette into thin slices and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Warm up a large skillet and toast the bread slices on each side until nice and toasty, about 2 minutes on each side.
