Delicious and surprisingly light snack or meal.

Reminiscent of a Caprese salad (tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, balsamic vinegar) but sweeter with the addition of fresh strawberries, herbal basil, and the sweet tangy flavour of the balsamic vinegar.

The cream cheese adds a richer texture than mozzarella.

The toasted English Muffins provide a light base with a gentle crunch to balance the softness of the fruit and cream cheese.
