The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Strawberry Bruschetta

Strawberry Bruschetta

 

I  just can't get enough strawberries lately. The strawberries I'm finding at my market are bursting with flavor, and I find myself coming home with 1,2...or sometimes 3 pints each visit.

Today, I have for you, a super easy and delicious strawberry appetizer for your summer entertaining!

Needless to say, when I had a BBQ this weekend, strawberries were going to be on the menu. I already had a dessert plan so I decided to go with something a little more savory. I saw a handful of Strawberry Bruschetta recipes that call for goat or cream cheese, but I tried that, and I thought it took away from the rich strawberry flavor. And since I can't get enough strawberry in my life these days, I clearly did not want any cheese interfering with the flavor.

Reader Alert: This is the first time in my life I have ever opted out of eating or using cheese. I am a cheese addict.

Onto the recipe!

Ingredients
1 pint of strawberries, hulled and chopped
10 basil leaves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
baguette, sliced
olive oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl, mix together strawberries, basil leaves, balsamic vinegar and sugar (this can be done ahead of time...the mixture was still good the next day).

Brush baguette slices with olive oil. Place in oven for 3 to 4 minutes or until bread starts to toast (keep a close eye, you don't want to burn the bread!).

Spoon strawberry mixture on top of toasted baguette slices and serve.

I've been buying up strawberries like crazy, too! Love using them in dishes this time of year! This bruschetta sounds wonderful!

Thank you Jessica!
