  1. Toss strawberries with fresh basil and place in fridge until ready to garnish.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  3. Place sliced bread on the baking sheet and brush both sides with olive oil and parsley mixture. Set aside.
  4. In a food processor or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip goat and feta cheese with the pepper and honey.
  5. Toast bread lightly and remove from oven. *you don't want these too crunchy so keep an eye on them.
  6. Place a small amount of goat/feta mixture onto each slice of bread then top with a few arugula leaves.(This will ensure that the arugula adheres to the bread and won't slip off - Steve's idea - he's so SHMART)
  7. Place a nice dollop of goat feta mixture on top of the arugula. Top with a small amount of the strawberry/basil mixture. Garnish with fresh basil and serve.
