Super Easy Strawberry Basil Bruschetta

This Strawberry Bruschetta starts off with a loaf of crusty bread, some fresh strawberries, basil and my favorite: mascarpone cheese.

The rich, creamy mascarpone cheese goes wonderfully with the strawberries and fresh basil. The fruit adds some sweetness to the cheese. I add a squeeze of lemon juice for a little tartness.

To assemble the crostini I first toast the baguette until it’s crispy and golden brown. Next I slather on a generous amount of mascarpone cheese.

I toss the diced strawberries with lemon juice and basil. Place it on top of the crostini and your done!

This strawberry toast is the perfect combination of sweet and savory.
