Castello Summer of Blue — Blue Brie and Balsamic Strawberry Crostini

To say I love cheese would be an understatement

I love cheese on my pasta, pizza, even cheese on my tater tots, cheese on french fries is the only way to go, and a sandwich isn’t a sandwich without the cheese, but sometimes simple is the way to go, especially in the summer when the livin’ is easy.
