Hillary showed us how to incorporate these seasonal berries into the perfect summery sweet treat but what are we to do when we want something a little more savory? Throw ’em in between two slices of bread – you’ll be glad you did!
2 slices whole grain bread, toasted
1/2 lb. strawberries
1 T brown sugar
1 small log of plain goat cheese
bunch of arugula
bunch of fresh basil
Slice the strawberries and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with a touch of brown sugar, freshly cracked pepper and a good drizzle of balsamic vinegar . Set aside while preparing the rest of the sandwich fixins.Toast the bread. Loosen the goat cheese to a spreadable consistency with a touch of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Dress the arugula and basil leaves with a touch of oil and salt.
Now you’re ready to assemble: bread, cheese, berries, greens, more cheese, bread.This does get a bit messy – strawberries sliding all over the place and refusing to stay in between the 2 slices of bread…perhaps this combo might work even better as an open faced sammy or even as a nice summer bruschetta. Any way you pile it on a piece of bread this sweet n’ peppery sandwich is sure to please.
Pocket breads? or gordita style? I love apples with cheese, so I’m sure the strawberries will be a refreshing alternative – and in a sandwich. I never would have thought of that. You ladies should be on CHOPPED! 🙂
