"I didn't have a lot of white sugar so I used brown. It was delicious. The goat cheese gives a nice balance to the sweet berries and the bold flavor of basil. Super quick dessert or treat. Definitely keeping this around."

"The freshness of the blueberries really pop in this delightful dish and with the addition of creamy goat cheese and fresh picked basil it really brings out the flavors of summer, and it makes a nice presentation when serving guests."
