These Peach Toasts with Basil and Feta are the perfect easy appetizer for summer! Toasted bread, juicy peaches, fresh basil and feta are delicious together in one bite! Pair these with a glass of white wine for a light meal.
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 of 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. Peaches and basil may sound like an odd combo but these two are made for each other. You can even add fresh sweet corn to the mix for texture or a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
This toast is a delicious departure from the typical peach pairing with cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla.
Serve these peach toasts as a healthy snack or appetizer or combine with a variety of dips and vegetables for a light dinner.
These toasts go great with a glass of white wine! Serve them as an appetizer to a fish or chicken dinner or alongside a white bean dip for lunch.

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

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!
Thanks Jenny! Hope you and the little one to come are doing great!

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!
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!
