Strawberries and Blue Cheese Bruschetta

Serves: 12

 

All you need:

  • 12 medium strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1-2 teaspoons water, if needed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

All you do:

  1. Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl and let stand while you make the cheese spread.
  2. Combine cream cheese and blue cheese in a small bowl using a fork. Add water, if necessary, for a thick but spreadable consistency. Stir in 1 tablespoon chives and pepper.
