The strawberries soften just a bit and then melt in your mouth while the black pepper adds touch of earthy spice. Don't be afraid of how lemony the crostini is; once you add a little goat cheese and a roasted strawberry you will taste the heavenly flavor combination.

I will definitely make this again; next time I'll probably do it on the grill in a little cast iron skillet. The smokey addition will meld in nicely. And if you are looking for a place in Sun Prairie that's doing great things with local fare, stop into Salvatore's, they really do a nice job (thanks Brian and Cindy for introducing us to this great place!)~
