Topical Bruschetta is a refreshing fruity twist on the classic bruschetta and takes just minutes to throw together!
I just can’t get enough of all the fresh summer produce! The gorgeous veggies and sweet juicy fruits… perfectly refreshing on these hot summer days out in the sun.
Bruschetta is a summer appetizer staple but to switch things up a bit I decided to swap out the tomatoes for some tropical fruit. Fruit on top of toasted bread may seem a little different, even weird, but gosh it is good! Especially since the bread is topped with coconut oil giving it more of a tropical taste. But what doesn’t taste good on warm toasted bread?!
This is such a fun refreshing appetizer that is quick and easy to make. A perfect dish to bring to a barbecue and eat out by the pool. And yes, even out by the little inflatable kiddie pool. That’s how I enjoy mine! Just close your eyes, sink your teeth into this sweet bruschetta, and imagine you’re relaxing on a tropical beach with white sand and crystal clear water. Enjoy!
