bruschetta with strawberries and tomatoes

I haven't known the awesomeness that is a grill until recently when my husband received one for Father's Day. We have been putting that thing to good use lately as any excuse to not heat the house is fine by me. I saw this recipe for bruschetta with strawberries and tomatoes and just had to make some the other night to go along with our steaks and corn on the cob. This 'oh so good' little appetizer is definitely going into our grilling repertoire. I really want some now...

  • 1/2 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/2 pint mixed cherry tomatoes (red and yellow), quartered
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing bread
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large baguette, cut on the diagonal into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • In a medium bowl, mix first five ingredients with 2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Place bread on a baking pan and brush with olive oil; flip and repeat. Heat grill to medium-high. Transfer bread to grill; grill until slightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  • Place grilled bread slices on a platter and top each with a heaping spoonful of the strawberry-tomato mix.
