Strawberry Basil Relish

One of my favorite summer breakfasts (or snacks) combines two of my favorite seasonal flavors: Strawberries and fresh basil.  Add in some good balsamic vinegar and you have delicious Strawberry Basil Relish.

This yummy strawberry, goat cheese and basil combination has just a touch of balsamic vinegar, and when it’s served on top of a warm, toasty bagel I think it’s a little bite of heaven.

(And did I mention that there’s goat cheese…?)

It’s super easy to put together too.

1. Wash, hull and slice/chop strawberries.
2. Wash, dry and stack a few leaves of fresh basil.
3. Roll up basil leaves and snip into little pieces using a knife or kitchen shears.
Toss strawberries and basil with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Toast up a bagel (I like whole wheat) and crumble the goat cheese onto the warm bagel.
Spoon your delicious Strawberry-Basil Relish over the top of the top of everything and enjoy!
Tip: It tastes even better if your kids are in another room when you eat it.  Fresh strawberries…. fresh basil…. goat cheese… peace and quiet….  with a little drizzle of balsamic.
What’s your favorite summer breakfast?
