Servings 25 crostini's


  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 French baguette
  • 2-3 tbsp balsamic glaze
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil EVOO
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder


  • Cut strawberries into slices (I use my Pampered Chef egg slicer). Set aside. In a food processor combine ricotta, basil and chives. 
  • Preheat oven to 400. Slice up baguette and place on a lined baking sheet. Combine olive oil with garlic salt, garlic powder and pepper to taste. Brush olive oil mixture onto each baguette slice. Place baking sheet in the oven for 7-10 minutes.
  • Once bread is toasted, assemble crostini by layering each piece of toast with the herbed cheese and sliced strawberries. 
  • Drizzle with honey and balsamic glaze and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with snipped chives and/or basil before serving. Enjoy!
