Strawberries are starting to arrive in local markets, and our first locally grown strawberries arrived in our CSA this week! I was thrilled to use them in strawberry brushetta: d'amato's short French bread; softened goat cheese, macerated strawberries, topped with fresh basil, ground black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Is this an appetizer or a dessert? You decide!
Below is our CSA:
Rapini (Nichols Farm, Illinois)
