Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread
I’m all about simple, healthy food recipes, especially when entertaining and definitely when it’s nice outside. Serving guests delicious recipes with fresh ingredients is the perfect way to make them feel at home. That’s why I love this recipe for Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread. It always gets rave reviews – your guests will flip for it’s flavor!
It comes together in about 10 minutes, but tastes amazing with ripe strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar. We often serve this recipe and my Easy Homemade Hummus when we need some quick and healthy appetizers. Yum-mo!
We serve this flatbread throughout the summer since it’s light and pairs well with other appetizers, drinks or snacks. Sometimes I make it for lunch because it’s so simple and not too filling. It’s like a little Strawberry Balsamic Pizza!
To make the Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread as healthy as possible, I use whole wheat flatbread, but it’s great with regular as well.
Tips for Making Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread
A fancy little trick I learned a while back is to chiffonade fresh basil. (I love saying that word, it’s so pretty!) This is accomplished by stacking the basil leaves, rolling them tightly, then slicing the leaves perpendicular to the roll into tiny strips with a sharp knife. The delicate strips remain bright green and full of flavor, plus, they look beautiful when incorporated into your spring and summer dishes!
Using the best aged balsamic vinegar you can find makes a huge difference. The flavor is rich and elevates any dish. We can really taste the difference. Inexpensive balsamic vinegar just doesn’t measure up.
You can make your strawberry marinade ahead of time and then assemble right before you want to serve.
The variations for this recipe are endless. You could add sweet onions to the marinade or top with any variety of cheese. A little soft goat cheese would be wonderful.
