Strawberry Balsamic Crostini
1 pint fresh Harvest Haven strawberries
1 cup ricotta (or any cream cheese)
2 tablespoons finely chopped basil leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
1 loaf Harvest Haven country bread, cut in ½ inch thick slices (8-10 slices)
2-3 tablespoons Bioitalia organic balsamic vinegar glaze
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut strawberries into slices. Set aside. In a small mixing bowl combine ricotta, basil and chives. Stir to combine thoroughly then set aside.
Toast bread in a toaster or under the broiler of your oven (or on the grill if you like), until golden brown.
Assemble crostini by layering each piece of toast with the herbed cheese and sliced strawberries. Add a drizzle of balsamic glaze and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with snipped chives and chopped basil before serving. Enjoy!
