Sweet and Savory Strawberry Bruschetta

Serves 16     adjust servings

Sweet and savory bruschetta with strawberries, fresh goat cheese, honey and mint will help you share the best of strawberry season with party guests.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 teaspoons mild-tasting honey, divided, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced mint leaves
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese (chevre), at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt, plus more for finishing
  • 1/2 baguette, cut on the bias into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the broiler with a rack about 6 inches below the heat source. Place the strawberries, 1 teaspoon of the honey, and the mint leaves in a medium bowl and stir gently to combine. Let sit at room temperature while you prepare the rest of the components. Note: if your strawberries are not luxuriously ripe, you may need a bit more honey, so adjust according to your taste.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the goat cheese, remaining 2 teaspoons honey, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Brush the baguette slices lightly with the olive oil. Place under the broiler until the tops are golden brown at the edges, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the slices and brown the other side as well.
  • To assemble the bruschetta, turn the baguette slices so the olive oil side faces up. Spread some of the goat cheese mixture on each slice, and top with a few slices of strawberry. Arrange the hors d'oeuvres on a platter and drizzle a bit more honey over each piece. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve at once.
