Equipment

  • Large baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 113 g soft fresh goat cheese *any from your grocer's specialty cheese section*
  • 475 g fresh Ricotta cheese *we use Tre Stelle's reduced fat version*
  • handful very ripe strawberries sliced
  • 1 fresh loaf of Artisan/Italian Bread or Baguette make 3/4 inch slices on an angle
  • Balsamic Glaze *the best ones are "Made in Modena, Italy*
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil enough to brush on top of sliced bread
  • coarse salt enough to sprinkle a pinch on top of each toast
  • fresh basil & arugula chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Wash & remove green tops of the berries. Slice length-wise.
  • Slice bread into ¾ inch slices on an angle & lay out on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle or brush the tops of each bread slice with olive oil & sprinkle with a pinch of coarse salt and bake until tops are lightly golden (~6-8 mins depending on strength of your oven).
  • Spread each toast with a generous amount of cheese (goat, ricotta or mix of both). Top each with 2-3 slices of the strawberries. Add chopped arugula to the ricotta-topped toast, and basil to the goat-cheese version. Place on a serving tray & drizzle balsamic glaze over each slice. That's it! Makes about 12 slices & 6 portions (*depending on the size of baguette you start with*)
