Strawberry Bruschetta

When we think of strawberry recipes our minds immediately jump to sweet things like pies, jams and shortcake.  To start off our celebration of strawberries here at delishsis, we decided to start off with something a little unexpected. This strawberry bruschetta is one of our favourite strawberry recipes of all time. It has that element of surprise and totally tastes like a party in your mouth.  It has the perfect amount of sweetness from ripe, freshly picked strawberries that’s balanced by the tangy taste of goat cheese, a drizzle of balsamic, followed by herby fresh basil and the spice of cracked black pepper. All of this on top of a grilled slice of french baguette and you’ve got the perfect summer appetizer that can be whipped up in under 15 minutes! We love it and hope you do too!
