Brie-Berry Bruschetta Recipe

Brie-Berry Bruschetta Recipe

I love fresh strawberries, and I try to enjoy as many as possible during the season. Because so many strawberry recipes are quite sweet, I wanted to start the meal with something savory, so I came up with strawberries, cheese and good bread.
