Fresh Fruit Bruschetta with Orange-Honey Drizzle

This is a perfect summer snack, appetizer, or dessert. It could even be served at a brunch. It's such a fun twist on typical bruschetta!

Fresh Fruit Bruschetta with Orange-Honey Drizzle
-adapted from Our Best Bites-

1 long, skinny baguette
4 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbs. cinnamon + sugar mixture

1 1/2 c. finely diced strawberries
1 c. finely diced mango
1 c. finely diced kiwi (about 4 kiwi)

1/2 c. vanilla yogurt
3 Tbs. honey
2 tsp. juice (from the orange)
1 tsp. orange zest

Slice bread into 1/2 inch slices. Melt butter in a large skillet and then toast baguette slices on both sides until very lightly crisp. Remove from skillet and generously sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Set aside to cool.

Next combine yogurt, honey, juice, and zest. Stir to combine and place in the fridge.

Chop strawberries, mango, and kiwi and stir gently to combine. When bread is cooled, place about 1 Tbsp. of fruit mixture on top of each toasted bread slice and drizzle with yogurt sauce. If needed, thin sauce with additional orange juice. Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
