Goat Cheese Crostini with Strawberry Bruschetta
Ingredients (Yields 6 crostini)
6 large, fresh strawberries (or 10 smaller ones), diced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
8-10 large, fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
6 slices of a baguette, 1/4 inch thick, lightly toasted
4 ounces goat cheese (the spreadable kind, not the crumbles)
1. Prepare the bruschetta: Combine the strawberries, balsamic, sugar and basil in a small bowl. Let sit while preparing the crostini.
2. To prepare the crostini: Lightly toast each piece of bread. Spread each toasted piece with a thin layer of goat cheese.
