strawberry balsamic tart

July 5th, 2019

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.

    Mmmm I love easy appetizers/desserts like this! I tried a chocolate balsamic that would be so perfect with this.

    Looks yummy! Whilst I love puff pastry (have you ever tried to make the laminated dough? ha…not worth it to me.) I used my to-die-for berries on a pavlova with homemade lemon curd. Wish I had your photography skills. A wee bit early here in northern Calif for the best (first harvest) local berries. Thanks for all! If I had a daughter rather than sons I’d want her to be exactly like you.
