I was pleasantly surprised with this appetizer.  I was trying to come up with more innovative pumpkin appetizers for the Pumpkin Spectacular this year. A few years back I had pumpkin goat on a crostini; so, I thought I’d put a spin on this previous appetizer.  Also, I like to try to fit more fruits and vegetables into appetizers, since they tend to be lighter.  This appetizer is what came to fruition.
