I’m all about simple, especially when entertaining.  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.  The recipe comes together in about 10 minutes, but tastes amazing with ripe strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar.

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. To make the Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread as healthy as possible, I use whole wheat flatbread, but it’s great with regular as well.

You can also plan ahead and marinate the strawberries earlier in the day and put it all together as guests are arriving.

TIP:  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!
