Strawberry Bites

This past Saturday I did my first live cooking demo of the summer at the opening of the Litchfield Hills Farm Fresh Market. It was a beautiful day to be outside and my tasty strawberry bites seemed to be a big hit with shoppers!

Here's the recipe.

Strawberry Bites

Ingredients
Directions
  1. Wash and hull the strawberries. Cut each strawberry in half. Set them aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine the chevre, toasted sliced almonds, minced mint, minced chives, and honey.
  3. Take a teaspoon or espresso spoon and gently top each strawberry half with some of the cheese mixture.
  4. Finally, drizzle a touch of balsamic vinegar over each topped berry.
  5. Serve.
Alternatives
  • No goat cheese? Try mascarpone or cream cheese.
  • This makes a wonderful hors d’oeuvre served on a large platter with toothpicks or create individual portions as appetizers for a sit-down brunch.
