Strawberry Basil Bruschetta Recipe

Strawberry bruschetta is an easy-to-prepare changeover using strawberries that are less than sweet. By macerating sliced strawberries in sugar and rum, and slicing basil into thin strips, I assembled this Strawberry Basil Bruschetta in no time. To give it a flavor kick, I also drizzled some Balsamico and dotted the bruschetta with some goat cheese over store-bought Cranberry Toast (slathered a wee bit of Mascarpone, leftover from something else I was making).
