Strawberry-Balsamic Appetizer

February 12th, 2013 posted by Lana Stuart

This is a quick and easy appetizer with quite a sophisticated flavor. These little bites combine strawberries, balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper. The base for the appetizer is the cracked black pepper and olive oil flavored Triscuit cracker. Try some of these tasty nibbles at your next get together, perfect for Mother’s Day!

Strawberry-Balsamic Appetizer

adapted from Kraft Foods For one dozen appetizers: 12 Triscuit Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil crackers 12 tsp. softened cream cheese 6 ripe, sweet strawberries, halved Balsamic vinegar Wash the strawberries, remove the tops and cut them in half. You want to use the sweetest, ripe strawberries you can find for this. The contrast in flavors between the sweetness of the strawberries with the balsamic vinegar and black pepper is what makes this so interesting. Place a teaspoon of cream cheese on each of the crackers. Top with a strawberry half. Place the assembled appetizers on a serving dish and add a drop or two of balsamic vinegar to the top of each strawberry.

Lana’s Notes:

If you can’t find the Triscuits, you can mix a little olive oil and lots of cracked black pepper into the cream cheese and use a neutral flavored cracker.
