In this healthy bruschetta recipe, the big, bold, salty, tangy flavor of blue cheese makes an unexpected but utterly delicious match with sweet juicy strawberries. This bruschetta recipe makes a quick, easy appetizer and is so pretty topped with chopped green chives.

Total Time: 20 minutes
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
12 slices whole-grain baguette (1/4 inch thick), warmed or toasted
Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl and let stand while you make the cheese spread.
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.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture on each piece of baguette. Top with the sliced berries. Garnish with a sprinkle of chives, if desired.
