Peach & Tomato Crostini

Lately I’ve been reading all kinds of summer bucket lists that are floating around the internet. I enjoy them – they inspire me to get away from the computer and do fun things like hang out at pools with popsicles. (which I haven’t actually done, but the idea still lifts my spirit).

For me, summer + list-making don’t go hand-in-hand, so I’ll just make one goal and that is to eat ALL of the peaches. I freaking love peaches. Their season is happening here and now in Texas so I’m I making the most of it with things like peach salads, peach salsa, and peach pops, just to name a few…

The other day, with my Farmhouse bounty, I made crostini with the sweetest peaches and cherry tomatoes. The basil in my herb garden isn’t doing so well, so traditional pesto wasn’t going to be an option. Instead, I picked some pretty purple sage, oregano, chives (and a couple of sorta-bruised basil leaves) and pulsed them together with pine nuts. It’s almost pesto – I stopped short of adding the olive oil because I liked the taste of it as a chunkier spread.

Assemble the toasts with sliced peaches and cherry tomatoes and serve on a patio with Peach Sangria!

  6. Peaches are simply better when in season making your Peach and tomato crostini here looking so divine! You’re right, best to make the most of it while you still can – I’m thinking grilled peaches with mascarpone cheese or perhaps with some homemade icecream.

    These look gorgeous! I love peaches, too – unfortunately, I live in Denmark, so the quality we have here (imported) is probably far from what you have in Texas. Will have to try these soon!

  10. wow this looks so delicious and healthy! I love peach season – I can’t resist adding them to smoothies or simply yoghurt, peaches and some homemade granola. I’m definitely going to have to try this dish!
