Peach Basil & Feta Toast

Peaches and basil may sound like an odd combo but these two are made for each other.

I love how peaches work well in both sweet and savory dishes. This Peach Basil & Feta toast delivers sweet, savory, salty and crunchy all in a couple bites. It makes a perfect appetizer or snack. Truth be told… these almost became dinner when I was taking these photos… I could not stop eating them!

This is hardly a proper recipe… more of a collection of ingredients that work really well together. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the second toast even has a little sweet corn mixed in. I loved having it in there for texture. This toast is a delicious departure from the typical peach pairing with cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla.

Try it out and let me know what you think. And I’m curious… what other combos have you tried with peaches that work?

    Such beautiful photos! The tiny basil leaves are so cute. :) I will put this on my appetizer menu the next time I have dinner guests. Makes me realize I have not had peaches in my CSA this summer. :( Reply

      Thanks, Janice! Aren't the basil leaves cute!? That peach situation must be remedied... summer is not quite summer with fresh peaches! Reply

    So simple, yet so summery! Love the peach/basil/feta combo. Have a bunch of peaches ripening on my counter, so must give this a try. Pinning! Reply

    Peaches and basil are great together! I just made a nectarine salsa that has red onion and cilantro in it - you can try the same combo w peaches! Reply

      I thought about adding sweet onion to this but stopped short and kept it basic. That salsa sounds delicious. For some reason though, I tend to skip right over the nectarines... need to get them a chance! Reply
