Strawberry Bruschetta with Paneer

Happy sunny Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Strawberry Bruschetta with Paneer – light, fruity and absolutely delicious, perfect for the hot weather!

Strawberry Bruschetta with Paneer

My original idea was to make panini (hence the panini bread I used) but I decided to go for Strawberry Bruschettas instead. And these beautiful bruschettas didn’t disappoint at all. The Paneer cheese I used really complimented the strawberries. It was very mild and had crumbly texture, more like cottage cheese. I haven’t used Paneer cheese like this before but it worked really well so I’m glad I did. πŸ™‚

The bruschettas are super simple to make. I toasted the bread first with a bit of olive oil, then added the strawberries, paneer and some fresh basil and left in the oven for another five minutes. The result was absolute deliciousness. πŸ™‚ The strawberries were so sweet and juicy and tasted amazing with the paneer and basil. I feel like every time the weather gets really hot my favourite things to eat are strawberries and tomatoes. πŸ™‚ And basil is my number one summer herb. πŸ™‚ I’d really love to be able to grow my own fruit, veg and herb one day. That would be so exciting! πŸ™‚ However, at the moment I use the shops for fresh fruit and veg.

These bruschettas are a great appetizer too. I’m pretty sure your friends/guests would be really please if you serve them these with a glass of champagne. πŸ™‚ This is how I should’ve had them. πŸ™‚ And as I said, they’re great to have as a light lunch on a really hot day like today. πŸ™‚ Not that I’m complaining about the weather. I love it! πŸ™‚

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

Happy Friday! Today’s recipe is Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad – fresh, fruity and simply amazing!

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

The series with grilled veggie salads continue! πŸ™‚ Just joking! The thing is I spotted some ripe British strawberries while doing my weekly shopping and had to get a few packs. The strawberries I get are usually imported so you can understand my excitement when I saw these strawberries (they usually come around this time of the year). πŸ™‚

OK, let’s focus on the salad then. I find the sweet and sour combination very tasty! Apart from the strawberries and grilled zucchini, there’s also feta cheese, apricots, a few chopped up pecans and some freshly chopped basil. This is what I call a beautiful Summer salad. It’s so light and tasty, just perfect to have on a hot summer day, probably with a nice glass of white. πŸ™‚ You can have it as a quick snack too. It’s needless to say it’s healthy and low in calories. The downside is you can’t really store it for more than a day. I recommend consuming it straight after preparations. The fruit will get soggy and even might go off so have it fresh and make sure to finish it all. πŸ™‚ That was not a problem for me. πŸ™‚

And because it’s the grillingΒ season I think this salad will be a great addition to any BBQ. No matter what you’re making – fish or meat, this beauty will compliment both. Use as a side or as an appetizer before serving the mains, you won’t go wrong.

I kept the dressing simple as I wanted the salad to be this way – fresh and simple. So I used some olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

The pecans add a crunchy bite to it that I love in salads. Pecans seem to work quite well with fruit. You can use walnuts, too. Just add a few on top for some extra crunchiness. πŸ™‚
