Summer Fruit Bruschetta

It’s almost impossible to find a bad watermelon or kiwi this time of year, so why not take advantage and make this delicious Summer Fruit Bruschetta? This Bruschetta uses seasonal watermelon and kiwis to create a deliciously fun appetizer that is a healthy addition to any summer BBQ! Because I love this idea so much, I’m giving you two recipes in one post!

You may be thinking, why would I stray from the original bruschetta? Well, both of these pairings serve up a wonderful sweet and salty flavor.  And, both watermelon and kiwi are at the peak of freshness and packed with nutrients and antioxidants.  They are also both high in water to keep you hydrated all summer long.  Give these new versions of bruschetta a try, and I promise you will be glad you did!
