Berry, berry good, if I say so myself.
The other day I purchased two containers of local strawberries thinking I was going to make some strawberry mojitos. No dice on the mojitos (oh, we still had mojitos, just not strawberry ones) so I found myself with lots and lots of strawberries. As I was looking through my recipes, I stumbled across one that I seem to always pass by – probably because strawberry season hasn’t been here for too, too long. It was a good stumble, too. I had all the ingredients on hand. Strawberries? Check. Bread? Check. Basil? Check. Goat cheese? Check.
Spread one half with goat cheese, top with basil confetti and strawberry slices. Grill, cut on the diagonal (total MUST) and dig in. Berry good. (Recipe inspired by Southern Living.)
On the side, purple asparagus that turned green in the oven. Not cool, not cool at all.
But strawberries are cool even when they’re hot.
