A blend of fresh cherries, strawberries, mint and balsamic vinegar make this toasty treat a perfect brunch addition!
Strawberry Cherry Bruschetta
1/2 cup pitted fresh cherries, chopped
1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
2 Tbsp. red onion, minced
3 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
3 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1/2 container Fauxmagerie Zengarry Double Creme (Brie style) cashew cheese
1 baguette, sliced on the diagonal
Olive oil for brushing baguette
Mix cherries, strawberries, red onion, basil, mint, and balsamic vinegar in a medium sized non-reactive bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to let the flavours blend.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place 8-10 baguette slices on a cookie sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake 5-6 minutes, oiled side down in a preheated oven.
Place a small scoop of Fauxmagerie Zengarry Double Creme cashew cheese on each baguette slice and allow to soften. Spread the cashew cheese over the bread and top with strawberry-cherry-basil bruschetta sauce. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and serve warm.
**Balsamic Reduction: If you can't find this pre-made at the grocery store, you can make your own!
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
Combine vinegar and sugar in a small pot and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil until volume is reduced by half. Remove from heat and allow to cool and thicken.
