As much as I hate being behind with my posting, it is kinda nice to be writing the post and eating the dish at the same time! I try to be at least a post or two ahead, but somehow this week just got a way from me. Things have been busy in a good way though, and these Brie Cheese Quesadillas with Strawberry Salsa are making things even better right now!
I got the idea to make a strawberry salsa sometime last Spring, but I just never got around to it. I was going to pickle the strawberries and use the salsa as a topper for a fun and exciting taco. Now that I’m thinking about it again, I may still have to do that, but for now I’m giving you these quesadillas and I think they will make you happy 🙂
As you may have inferred from some of my previous posts I don’t eat much dairy. I’m a big cheese lover at heart, but my stomach likes me much better when I stay away from it. In high school I have up dairy for a month and I swear that I lost ten pounds because cheese was one of my main food groups back then! That being said, I have a very special place for quirky cheeses like goat cheese, feta, and brie.
Brie cheese is one of the meltiest, gooiest, most amazing cheeses ever! It comes wrapped in a rind that makes it look super fancy and the taste is really like no other. It is commonly served with fruit and honey and sometimes even baked inside of a puff pastry, I told you it was fancy pants cheese! I figured it would go great inside of a quesadilla because of it’s high powered melting capabilities and as it turns out, these are some of the best quesadillas I have ever eaten! The strawberry salsa is sweet with a little bit of maple syrup but also tangy with some balsamic vinegar and goes so well with the cheese.
I enjoyed these quesadillas for lunch, but I’d be lying if I said the thought of eating them for breakfast didn’t cross my mind 🙂Print
