Strawberry Bruschetta

I am always on the lookout for great appetizers.  These are fun to take to a party, like I did.  Our neighbor, Penny, turned 70 and we got together to throw her a surprise party.  The neighbor’s home was BEAUTIFUL and she did a great job planning and getting everything all together.  There was A LOT of food.  These were my contribution to the festivities:

Strawberry Bruschetta

Ingredients

1 cup strawberries, stems removed and diced

1 tsp. sugar

1 French baguette sliced on a bias

4 oz. goat cheese

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

basil leaves chiffonade cut

Freshly ground black pepper

Salt

Combine the strawberries and sugar and allow to macerate for at least 30 minutes

Toast bread slices until a crusty exterior is achieved but not yet golden

Put goat cheese in a mixer, in order to make it spreadable

Spread goat cheese on bread slices, spoon strawberries onto each slice

Top with a small drizzle amount of balsamic vinegar and olive oil

Lightly dust a SMALL amount of salt and some fresh cracked pepper

Top with some basil

Note:  Because of the juiciness of the strawberries, you’ll want to serve these shortly after making them so the bread doesn’t get soggy.   It makes a great, impressive presentation!  Take another look…
