Slice 2 cups of strawberries and place in a medium bowl. Add the shredded basil, EVOO and balsamic vinegar and give the berries a light toss. Let the strawberry topping sit at room temperature until they release their juiced. You want the berries to be softer, but not mushy.
Turn oven to broil and heat.
Slice French baguette into approximately 24 even slices and place on baking sheet. Lightly butter each slice and place in oven for about two minutes or until lightly toasted.
