This dish was tumbling around in my head after I saw an inspiration photo on Pinterest — and then combined it with the flavors in this recipe and this recipe, to come up with this tart! I love the strawberry-balsamic combo, and this felt like the perfect way to make it into something a little prettier!
There’s something so beautiful about a tart like this — it only takes a few minutes to pull it together, but it looks like you put a ton if time and effort into it! I also love that this could double as an appetizer or a healthy dessert!
Strawberry Balsamic Tart
1 puff pastry crust (I used Pepperidge Farm)
1/3 cup strawberry preserves
1 pint strawberries, greens removed, sliced
10 small basil leaves
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Defrost puff pastry and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees in a preheated oven. Microwave the strawberry jam with 1 tsp of water for 30 seconds. When the puff pastry comes out of the oven, brush it with the warm jam, leaving about 1 inch around the edges of the tart. Layer the strawberries over the jam and add basil leaves as desired. Drizzle 2 tsp of balsamic vinegar over the tart, and serve.
