Strawberry & Blue Cheese Bruschetta

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/strawberry_blue_cheese_bruschetta.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2013

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.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl and let stand while you make the cheese spread.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
