  • This bruschetta is the ultimate sweet and savoury combination. The salty goat’s cheese works perfectly to cut through the sweetness of the strawberries, while the garlic-rubbed bread adds another layer of flavour to excite the taste buds. Topped off with an easy balsamic glaze, this is a quick appetizer that will add elegance to any dinner party. It’s simple to make and looks impressive too. A great picnic treat or party food.

    Ingredients

    • 100ml balsamic vinegar
    • A pinch caster sugar
    • 1 large ciabatta
    • Olive oil
    • 200g strawberries
    • Black pepper
    • 1 clove of garlic
    • 175g soft goat’s cheese
    • Small handful of basil leaves

    Method

    • Place the vinegar into a saucepan with the sugar and bring up to the boil on a high heat. When it starts to bubble, simmer for 10 mins until the vinegar has reduced by half and turned syrupy.

    • While that’s on the stove, cut the ciabatta lengthways and cut each half into 2 to make 4 equal-sized pieces. Drizzle the open sides with olive oil and place under the grill for a couple of minutes until lightly toasted.

    • Meanwhile, trim the tops off the strawberries and slice each in half, coating in a little olive oil and black pepper.

    • As soon as the ciabatta is ready, cut the garlic glove in half and rub all over the oiled side of the bread, then spread on the goat’s cheese.

    • Top with the strawberries, basil and a drizzle of the balsamic glaze.
