Strawberry-Spinach Bruschetta - a Summer Seasonal Hors d'oeuvre

Strawberry-Spinach Bruschetta by SeasonWithSpice.com

Berry shakes.  Berry salads.  Berry sauces.  Berry jams.  Berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

My tongue maybe tattooed dark red if summer doesn't end soon.  I'm willing to take the risk if I can keep finding strawberries like these...

Chop up some fresh strawberries and leafy spinach, then toss with a sweet, balsamic vinegar dressing to liven the flavors.  While the strawberries and spinach are marinating, spread a layer of Greek yogurt or sour cream onto slices of crunchy French bread.  Then add the strawberries and spinach, and top with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds and almond slivers. 

Easy to make, pretty to look at, and healthy to munch on.  Whether your seasonal produce came from your garden or your local farmer's market, these tasty Hors d'oeuvres are a great way to celebrate and share the summer harvest with friends and family.

What a fabulous idea! I love spinach and strawberry salad so why not a Bruschetta? Normally I would use cream cheese but I love your lighter idea of Greek yogurt!

I have not yet made bruschetta with fruits before. Strawberries sounds wonderful on it. I'm 110% positive that we'll end up with the bread only as both my children will pick and eat their favorite fruit on the top! =) These are really beautiful and made me appreciate summer.

Okay, whose idea is this? Is it Mark or Reese? Guys, how do you eat something this pretty huh? I would just stare at these bruschettas and probably will take a while to take a bite on it. They are very pretty I'm telling you!

Sometimes I combine both Greek yogurt & cream cheese for a touch of cheesy flavor too.

Hope the kids will attack the spinach too:)

What a beautiful twist on the classic strawberry, spinach salad..too clever to turn it into a bruschetta. who can refuse that crusty bread ? not me! :)

Ira Rodrigues said...

On this is new to me as I have never had a bruchetta with any fruit, I might give it a try and would adventure your recipe. Thank you for sharing Reese!

Season with Spice said...

Not me either:)

Season with Spice said...

Definitely not Mark's idea. He says it's too pretty for a man to make these bruschetta, although he won't shy away from finishing them.

Season with Spice said...

Wonderful to hear that you will give these a try, Ira. I find fruits complement many dishes. Once you start using them, you will have fun experiment with them. It's now my turn to say how lucky you are to have abundance access to tropical fruits:)
