Asparagus and Nectarine Bruschetta

These Asparagus and Nectarine Bruschetta are refreshing, creamy, sweet, summery and simply divine. They’re a great appetizer at a party or summer picnic, but also make a delicious breakfast. If you’re celebrating Christmas in Summer then these bruschetta would make a tasty and easy addition to your fabulous Christmas spread.

The bruschetta are made within 10 minutes and only require a handful of ingredients. The baguette is toasted and the asparagus are blanched. Both give the bruschetta some crunch. The basil and lemon zest add freshness while the nectarine adds sweetness. The avocado is responsible for bringing creaminess.

This combination of flavours practically scream spring/summer and I could easily eat these bruschetta every day. I recommend making them immediately before serving otherwise the avocado can oxidise. However, you can blanch the asparagus and cut the nectarine ahead of time.
