Sweet Berry Bruschetta

I've made this sweet berry bruschetta recipe by toasting the bread on a grill at cookouts, but any way I serve it, I never have any leftovers. The bruschetta is sweet instead of savory as is often expected, and visitors enjoy that change. —Patricia Nieh, Portola Valley, California
