The Best Bruschetta With Summer Fruit Recipe To Try Now

Summer fruit is spectacular when served on bruschetta!! California apricots and raspberries are in season and begging to be piled high atop mounds of toasty bread with creamy whipped cheese and paired with your favorite glass of wine.

Summer Fruit Bruschetta. So Yum!

This recipe is perfect for those warm summer nights that call for something sweet. It’s super easy to whip up, and the outcome is completely worth it. I used a cream cheese/ricotta mixture for the base, but you could easily substitute feta or goat cheese if you’d like.

Summer Fruit Bruschetta. So Yum!

The apricots nestle into the cheese, and the basil adds a fabulous twist. The quaint toasts are lightly drizzled with honey to bring it all together, and voila, an instant fresh summer appetizer…

The crunchiness of the bread and the softness of the cheese, along with all the fruit flavors going on, are so refreshing. It’s my new favorite appetizer to serve guests, and it can easily be yours too!

Black and Blueberry Ricotta Grilled Toast

Fire up the grill (or grill pan) and add a little smoky flavor to crostini by grilling your bread first instead of toasting. That subtle char really makes the juicy black and blueberries in this recipe from Real California Milk shine.
