Mango and Papaya Bruschetta

I love colour, my teenage self would have been so angry at that statement.  You know with all that teenage angst and I only wear black attitude, but my teenage self should just keep it zipped.

Give me a meal that looks like a beautiful rainbow, well now you’re talking. This bruschetta feels like spring on a plate, the colours are lively, its the perfect sweetness to go on a delicious toasted baguette.  Its also looks beautiful on a platter and will surely impress all your friends.
