Golden kiwifruit is less tart and far sweeter than the green kind. They still have the distinct kiwi taste though. Kiwi is great added to different recipes. They are great in a fruity salsa and here they work great as a topping for kiwi and blueberry bruschetta bread.

What Is Golden Kiwi

I have posted an article about golden kiwifruit which gives information about sweet golden kiwis and compares them to the traditional tart green kind. One local grocery store always has both golden kiwi and green kiwi in stock. Everyone in the family loves kiwifruit and it always gets eaten quickly. Both kinds are a real hit.

Ingredient Notes

While bruschetta is typically made with a tomato mixture, there are so many possibilities. While some kinds are savory  this recipe with the fruit is sweeter than others. The golden kiwi and blueberries go really well together and the feta cheese is creamy, with the perfect amount of salt to balance the zing of the lime zest.

  • French baguette – I love using baguettes for bruschetta bread.
  • Golden kiwi – in many ways this is the star of the dish. You will be surprised how sweet this kiwi is!
  • Blueberries – fresh blueberries are so good for this appetiser. Look for nice plump berries.
  • Feta cheese – this adds a creaminess to every bite. You could also use goat cheese.
  • Lime – the lime is used for both juice and zest to give the bruschetta a tang.
  • Salt – just a little bit for seasoning
  • Oil – vegetable or olive oil work very well. This is to brush the toasted baguette slices.

How To Make Fruit Bruschetta

This bruschetta is really easy to make and a perfect appetizer for dinner. It is also great as a canape for a party. Either way, these will be really popular and eaten up quickly! Trust me on that.

The first step is to cut the baguette into slices. I aim for slices that are about 1/2 inch thick. Place them on a baking sheet and put them in a 375F oven for about 5 minutes, or until they toast and brown along the top and edges.

While the baguette slices are toasting in the oven, you can make the kiwi blueberry bruschetta mixture. In a mixing bowl, add the peeled and diced kiwi, fresh blueberries, lime zest, lime juice, salt and crumbled feta. Gently toss the ingredients to combine.

Take the toasted baguette slices and brush with the oil and then spoon a large helping of the bruschetta mixture on top. Serve.

Use Green Kiwi Instead?

If you cannot find golden kiwifruit, you could use the standard green kind. I would make these adjustments though:

  • add 1 tsp honey. Golden kiwi are far sweeter but the tartness of the green kiwi could use a bit of sweetening.
  • reduce or eliminate the lime juice and lime zest. Since the green kiwi is tart on its own, the lime might not be needed at all.
