Strawberry Balsamic Bruschetta

strawberry bruschettaedited

This is a super quick yet impressive recipe to throw together. There’s really not much else to say about it. Slice some strawberries, toss them with a little balsamic and sugar, slow roast them, stir in a tiny bit of fresh chopped basil. Buy a baguette, toast it up and set out some cheese {of the goat or cream variety} to slather on top of the toasty baguette slices but beneath the sweet and tangy strawberry balsamic elixir. Easy-peasy, right?
