- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 12 slices Italian bread
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound stawberries, washed and diced
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving

Step 1: Heat vinegar in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Simmer until reduced by about half, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Step 2: Prepare a grill for high heat. Place bread slices on foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Step 3: Combine strawberries and thyme in a small bowl and set aside.
Step 4: Grill bread on the preheated grill until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
Step 5: Spread goat cheese on toasted bread. Add black pepper, salt, and reduced vinegar to the strawberry mixture. Spoon over the goat cheese topped bruschetta. Garnish with additional thyme.
