Preparation

Combine the cream cheese, salmon, lemon juice and hot sauce or horseradish in a food processor and blend until smooth. This mousse may be made and refrigerated up to 1 day in advance. If you do make this mixture ahead of time, allow it to soften before piping.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Brush the baguette slices with a little olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Toast for 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly crunchy on the outside.

Fit a pastry bag with a star tip and fill the bag about half full with the mousse. Pipe a rosette in the center of each crostini and garnish each with a sprig of herb and a slice of tomato (or your favorite garnish). Refill the bag as needed with mousse, pressing the new addition down towards the tip of the bag with a wooden spoon or spatula to prevent air pockets. (You also may spread the mousse on with a small knife.)
