1 pound strawberries, diced
8 basil leaves, thinly chopped
1 tbsp honey
1 baguette, thinly sliced
8 oz goat cheese, room temp
Basil leaves, for garnish
Assemble strawberries: Preheat oven to 425 F. While the oven is preheating, dice strawberries and place into a mixing bowl with chopped basil and honey. Stir together to combine.
Toast baguette: Brush baguette slices with a thin layer of olive oil on one side and place onto a baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly golden and toasty.
Top with bruschetta: Spread a thin layer of goat cheese onto each baguette slice and top with 1 tbsp diced strawberries. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and finish with fresh basil leaves for garnish.
Make Ahead: Dice the strawberries and toast the baguette 1-2 days in advance. But do not add the basil and honey beforehand, or the strawberries will macerate and break down too much. Cover the strawberries and store in the fridge. Store the baguette in a plastic bag or airtight container at room temperature.
