Ingredients

  • 1 baguette cut into 15 to 20 (1/2-inch) slices
  • 15 small slices of mozzarella
  • 2 medium tomatoes diced
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries diced, (you want equal parts tomatoes and strawberries)
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp fresh basil finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, strawberries and basil. Set aside.
  2. In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, mix balsamic vinegar and sugar. Simmer, stirring constantly until it is syrupy. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp olive oil.
  3. Drain any excess juice from the strawberry tomato mixture. Stir in the balsamic vinegar syrup.
  4. Preheat the oven for a few minutes on BROIL.
  5. Arrange bread slices on a cookie sheet. Top each slice with mozzarella. BROIL in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
  6. Place the bread slices on a serving platter and spoon the strawberry mixture onto the bruschetta.

Recipe Notes

If your balsamic vinegar syrup gets too stiff, just heat it a little bit before mixing it in.
