Fig, Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion Crostini

A delicious appetizer that's elegant yet easy.  Great for entertaining, the caramelized onions can be made up to two days ahead of time, crostini can be assembled early in the day, then just pop in the oven for 5 minutes before serving.
Recipe developed for Celebrity Goat Cheese

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large sweet onion, sliced
½ teaspoon salt
