4th of July Appetizer: Red, White, and Blue Bruschetta

This red, white, and blue bruschetta is a perfect appetizer for your 4th of July celebration --- be it a big barbecue with friends, a picnic by the lake, or appetizers on a blanket before the fireworks. It's beyond delicious, and seriously... how cute is it served in a half watermelon bowl?!

Introducing Red, White, & Blue Bruschetta:

It's super easy to make and super festive with all the right colors -- in a combination that tastes amazing:

  • Red: juicy watermelon and diced grape tomatoes
  • White: feta cheese
  • Blue: frozen (thawed) organic blueberries

Tossed together with fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, and salt and pepper, this is a sophisticated (yet super easy to make) summer appetizer that everyone goes crazy over!! I served mine over Udi's millet chia gluten-free bread, but you can also use sliced french bread or even a nice cracker.

You can also serve it as more of a fruit salad if you prefer, and forget the bread altogether!
