  • 200 gram flatbread
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil -plus more for garnish (optional)
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 50 grams smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp chives -minced
  • 1/2 avocado -sliced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • olive oil -drizzle for garnish (optional). Lemon olive oil works great if you have, otherwise regular.


  • Brush flatbread with olive oil and place on a baking sheet.  Bake In a 425 F oven for 8-10 minutes or until browned and crisped a little. Carefully remove.
  • Top flatbread with goat cheese, smoked salmon, capers, chives, avocado and black pepper. Cut into 12 pieces. Drizzle with additional olive oil if desired. Enjoy! 



  • I cut the flatbread into pieces after it was topped with everything.  However, if you prefer, you could cut into pieces and then top....do whatever is easiest for you.
  • Regular smoked salmon is what I used here.  Want to switch things up? Maple glazed smoked salmon works wonderfully too. 
  • Because the goat cheese can eventually make the flatbread soggy after a little bit, I wouldn't prep these in advance.  It's best made and enjoyed right away
  • You can use thinly sliced red onion or green onion in place of chopped chives if you prefer.
  • Try a pinch of dried dill (or some freshly chopped dill) instead of chives.
  • Don't have flatbread on hand? Toast up some small pieces of bread or use your favourite crackers instead!
  • Not into avocado? Try some thinly sliced cucumber instead.
  • Other tips and variations in body of post above.
