SWEET & SAVORY STRAWBERRY TEA SANDWICH

There is something so special when it comes to serving tea sandwiches. From afternoon tea to children's parties to evening cocktails, the possibilities are endless.  Sweet or savory, they are equally delicious.

In today's blog I chose a recipe that I ran across a few weeks ago using strawberries. Since it's strawberry season, I thought this recipe might provide a new twist on serving "something strawberry." Most everyone loves strawberries and these little tea sandwiches are not only easy to prepare they have just the right touch of sweet and savory to be a hit for all ages.




DIRECTIONS:

Step 1---Gather ingredients in pic
Step 2---Slice strawberries in thin slices.
Step 3---Add white balsamic vinegar & sugar to pan and boil for 5 minutes.
(All amounts of ingredients may be found at the original recipe listed at the bottom of this blog.)


ASSEMBLY OF SANDWICHES

Step 1--Spread 1 side of bread with Boursin.
Step 2--Layer with strawberry slices.
Step 3--Layer fresh basil on top of strawberries.
Step 4--Drizzle with vinegar & sugar mixture.


Cut off crusts and then cut sandwiches into triangles.
