P.S. – I didn’t win😢
I really have never been competitive but lately have taken to entering recipe contests. Maybe I am doing this because I have never been any good at sports and now subconsciously decided that the kitchen is my arena? Where is Dr. Jong when you need him? Anyway, since it is strawberry season, I thought I would share the recipe with you.
1 / 6
- 8 OUNCES OF LOW SUGAR STRAWBERRY PRESERVES
- 2 TABLESPOONS OF BASALMIC VINEGAR
- 1/2 CUP OF SHREDDED FRESH BASIL

- mix the strawberry preserves with the basalmic vinegar and basil.
- reserve some basil for garnish
- on a piece of parchment paper layer overlapping pieces of prosciutto
- on top of the prosciutto spread the goat cheese
- top the goat cheese with the strawberry preserve mixture

So, this was a contest that Trader Joe’s hosted? That sounds like my kind of competition! Your appetizer entry has every thing I love, including that glass of wine. It’s a winner in my book. 😉
Yes, it was a Trader Joe’s contest in April and thanks for the support.

Thanks so much.
Reading through the simple ingredient list, I know I would thoroughly enjoy this appetizer.
Oh, This looks AMAZING. I’m keeping this recipe, Bernadette, and using it for a outdoor gathering I’m going to next week. My friends will be so impressed! Thank you.
Smiling to think of you preparing this appetizer. Thanks Diana.
Oh my goodness, this looks amazing!!
Thanks for the kudos. Now if only Trader Joe’s could hear you.😂
I’m sorry that you did not win because this sounds delicious! What a great combination of flavors! But keep going! Never give up 😉😋

Awww, you. just like me❤️

I agree, you should have won Bernadette! I think it’s a wonderful combination of flavor.
Thank you my friend. There is always next time, right?
Absolutely, we never give up!
This looks absolutely delish! I’m gonna try it some day when I cook again!
Sweet, salty and creamy, a winning combination as far as I am concerned…I think your recipe sounds great. From the title, I didn’t know what to expect as the one time I used fregola, it was a Sardinian pasta in the shape of small round balls. 😊
Hi Karen, fregola is Italian for strawberry – my attempt at being fancy! Thanks for your support.
Sounds pretty good! When will you know about the contest? Wishing you success! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party. Hope your week is fantastic!
Hi Bernadette, I like the sound of this recipe. I’m sorry you didn’t win but there is always next year.
Thanks Robbie. Like Dom said, you can’t win unless you buy a ticket.
For me, you’re the winner anyways!
Sending you a big hug.
