Strawberry-Goat Cheese Bruschetta

For a fresh summer snack why not try a layer toasted bruschetta with juicy strawberries, creamy goat cheese, and peppery greens!


* 1 8-oz. baguette
* 1 Tbsp. olive oil
* 1 4-oz. log goat cheese (chevre)
* 1-1/2 cups sliced strawberries
* 1/2 cup arugula
* Olive oil
* Sea salt or coarse salt
* Freshly ground black pepper
* Snipped fresh herbs


1. Heat broiler. Halve baguette crosswise, then lengthwise. Place cut sides up on large baking sheet. Brush with the 1 tablespoon oil. Broil, 3 to 4 inches from heat, for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

2. Slice and divide cheese among toasts. Top with sliced berries. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese and berries soften. Remove from broiler; top with arugula. Drizzle additional oil. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and herbs. Makes 4 servings.
