Summer Fresh Recipe Series: Strawberry Crostini

When fresh berries are available Strawberry Crostini is the perfect summer appetizer!

 Strawberry Crostini 

We stopped by the farmers market today and found the most delicious strawberries.   These will be perfect used in an appetizer for this evening's get together with friends.  So playing off of a traditional crostini appetizer I decided to incorporate the strawberries. 

Toasted french bread is the base for a spread of goat cheese, topped with cut strawberries, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.  Luscious and creamy, bursting with flavor. YUM!


What Ingredients do I need?

  • French Baguette
  • goat cheese
  • strawberries
  • balsamic glaze

Substitutions and Variations

  • use ricotta, marscapone, or cream cheese instead of goat cheese
  • try roasting the strawberries
  • add some chopped basil

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Balsamic glaze is a syrup like reduction of balsamic vinegar.  This is a good brand.
  • By ripe organic strawberries for the best flavor.
