I have been craving bruschetta and crostini all summer. I love trying different types of toppings (I used to just stick with a basic tomato, mozzarella, basil bruschetta) and found this Strawberry Nectarine Bruschetta recipe from Joyful Healthy Eats. Slices of toasted bread are topped with goat cheese, nectarines, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and basil. I would have never thought to combine those fruits and vegetables, but it definitely works. This was Evan’s first time trying goat cheese and he loved it!
I used this bread recipe for the toasts. Any good, thick-crust, rustic Italian style bread will work. Bruschetta differs slightly from the crostini, like these Peach Tomato and Mozzarella Crostini. Crostini are made by thinly slicing a baguette, creating little toasts. Bruschetta are made from larger slices of country style bread. They are usually rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil before toasting.
