Berry Melon Bruschetta
Berry Melon Bruschetta is the ultimate summer appetizer.
I am always looking for ideas when it comes to finger food and appetizers for summer get togethers. This is the perfect solution. It can be used in many ways, not just as bruschetta. You could pair this with tortilla chips, pita chips or even use it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish. Those dual purpose recipes are the best!
I recently made this and had everything mixed together in a bowl ahead of my guests arriving. When my guests arrived I quickly toasted up some baguette to serve it on and let everyone top the bread with their own berry melon topping. If you top the Berry Melon Bruschetta ahead of time the bread gets soggy. You can even skip toasting the bread and just serve the bread soft–it tastes great either way.
You probably noticed this recipe has a lot of fresh produce incorporated in it. I am excited to be partnering with Produce for Kids and Meijer this year and their spring campaign that is encouraging shoppers to add more fruits and vegetables to their carts to benefit Jump with Jill . Since 2013, Produce for Kids has donated $342,823 to Jump with Jill. About 75 schools have been supported through the campaign since fall 2014. That is impressive and a great way to make an impact. You can head to this website www.produceforkids.com/Homeland to learn more about how you can support the campaign.
I strongly believe that encouraging people to eat more produce is important and can lead to a healthier lifestyle and diet. And lets be honest, with a recipe like this Berry Melon Bruschetta it also is delicious. My kids are huge fans of summer fruits so this was a huge hit with them. To be honest, my two year old Drew was eating it by the spoonful. Can you blame him?

Fruit salad, it's great. When I stopped to eat meat, I thought that I would never find something to replace, but the fruit is wonderful, I advise you all eat as much fruit as you can, and use this website with plenty of fruit recipes.

Would never have thought to serve a melon mixture on top of crostini= but it sounds so refreshing and looks delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!
