Strawberry basil bruschetta

Happy strawberry day! A BIG thanks to One Straw Farm for the surprise delivery of 200+ pints of pre-CSA season berries today! If you manage to resist eating them on your way home, try this. It's one of my favorite things to make this time of year.

1-2 pints fresh strawberries, diced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
goat cheese

Combine strawberries, balsamic vinegar and basil in a small bowl. Slice baguette diagonally and toast in a preheated oven (broiler) or toaster oven on a baking sheet (1-2 minutes per side). Spread goat cheese on toasts and top with bruschetta. YES.

The bruschetta will last for a day or two in your fridge, but it will lose its form fairly quickly. Would make a delicious salad dressing at that point!
