I thought this was pretty good -- my strawberries didn't have as much flavor as I would have liked, which I think would have made this better. However, I think much of my disappointment came from the fact that I was comparing it to the amazing Grilled Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Fig and Honey; however, they really aren't similar at all. These are much lighter and (without having the expectations I did), quite refreshing and tasty.
