“Stolen from a local source. I don't feel guilty anymore. Fresh, local produce is essential for this recipe. We love our Oregon-made artisan goat cheese from Alsea Acre Farm. Creamy, peppery, sweet, tangy in one bite-simple and delicious!”
8-10 crostini

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 -10 slices French bread, sliced about 1/2-inch thick (or any similar type bread)
  • 6 ounces fromage blanc goat cheese (Chevre for example. We used plain chevre with no herbs or any other additions.)
  • 4 -6 ounces baby arugula (ideally from your garden or the local farmer's market)
  • 3 -4 large strawberries, cleaned, hulled and sliced 1/4-inch
  • 2 tablespoons dark balsamic vinegar (good quality!)


  1. First toast or broil the bread slices until golden.
  2. Spread the goat cheese on each slice of bread.
  3. Add a scattering of baby arugula then top with a slice of strawberry.
  4. For the final touch, drizzle with a {{very light touch}} of dark balsamic vinegar.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. *Please note*: all amounts of ingredients listed are estimated.
