Strawberry-Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Strawberries and arugula are the perfect pair. Throw goat cheese in there, and it elevates it to a whole other level! These little appetizers were easy to make, although it was a little tough spreading the goat cheese on the bread once it was toasted. I thought it would melt right away but it didn’t. I served these to my kids without the arugula, and they still didn’t love them. It was the goat cheese. These would be great for a party, done on a smaller scale.
