This is recipe makes a statement and its ohhhhh so good. Great for a our wine and cheese socials or having a few people over. Not bad for a snack either. We also served cheese, crackers and sausage this day as well.

In another bowl blend cheese and t TB chives. Spread toasted bread with cheese mixture. Arrange strawberries on top. Sprinkle with remaining chives and pepper.
