Strawberry Nectarine Bruschetta

Have you ever had one those days where you ate way to much for lunch and are left feeling not so hungry for dinner? Yeah, that was me the other day so I decided to make this Strawberry Nectarine Bruschetta.

I had actually first tried this awesome Bruschetta on the day of my brothers wedding. When us girls were getting all glammed up in the morning, a friend of the mother of the bride {who was also a caterer} stopped by to make a bridal brunch. These Strawberry Nectarine Bruschettas were on the menu.  Not only were they so pretty and cute to look at, but the flavor combinations were amazing. The crunch from the toasted baguette, the creaminess from the goat cheese, the tartness from the strawberries, and freshness from basil. YUM! You will love it! It is the perfect Healthy Appetizer, or lunch, or dinner. :) All I have to say, is if you bring this Strawberry Nectarine Bruschetta to a party, you will definitely be the favorite! :)

To get started, dice 1 nectarine into small pieces and place in a small bowl. {cut around the main seed in the center}
