This strawberry feta bruschetta is a perfect appetizer–savory, sweet, and all around a hit!
Let me begin by telling you that I am as surprised as you are that this savory strawberry bruschetta situation is so delicious. So you’re just going to have to trust me when I say that it will be. After experiencing the sweet, tangy, and salty combination, it was a home run for us.
We were on a salads-for-dinner kick, when we had a spinach salad with a quick vinaigrette, grilled chicken, strawberries, feta and roasted garlic. And we fell in love with the unique mix of these toppings.
Sometimes salad toppings are easy to get into a rut with, because you feel like there is this line of sweet/fruity salads or savory/protein-y salads. But every once in awhile, you should mix it up just to give it a try! We recently went to one of those new salad bar places where you put anything you want on your salad. I was met with the same problem, but I think it turned out pretty delicious, all things considered. Who knew that pesto vinaigrette would be good on apples??
This strawberry feta bruschetta is a perfect appetizer for your own event, or to bring to someone else’s. It’s unique, and you won’t have to worry about anyone else also showing up with a potato casserole, too. Need another appetizer idea? Try these Asian meatballs, or pecan and blue cheese crostini!
