Just loved these, as a light lunch for myself, but I would be proud to serve them for any shower or luncheon I was hosting. The little tang from the goat cheese, with the strawberry sweet and crunchy nuts! Yum! Texture! Flavor! Thanks so much for sharing a winner, Baby Kato!

Made these for the local National Night Out, which was postponed - now we'll have to eat them all ourselves, darn it! Yummy and so easy.
