Strawberry Basil Bruschetta

Published on: 06/22/2023

This strawberry basil bruschetta is a quick but very tasty appetizer to make any time you have guests over. Featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients (including strawberries, cherry tomatoes, basil and mint) this is the perfect addition to any summer meal.

It’s very quick to make, and some aspects can be made ahead of time. If you need to get things done before guests arrive, slice your baguette and make the strawberry topping. The baguette is going to be toasted anyway, slicing it a couple hours ahead of time won’t make a difference. Make sure you toast the baguette just before serving though. For the topping, I find the flavours are stronger (especially the herbs), if it sits for a little bit to meld.
