It’s peach season over here! (I know, it comes early here in Texas). But when it’s peach season I have just one objective: Eat as many peaches as possible until it’s not peach season anymore.
On Saturday, I came home from the farmers market with these beautiful heirloom cherry tomatoes, sweet peaches, and my favorite nine grain (Easy Tiger) bread. I truly believe summer food should be simple, so I made this easy bruschetta for dinner along with a huge salad. It was perfect for a hot summer evening along with ice cold white wine.
I used creamy avocado this time instead of any sort of cheese, but it would also be nice with a little burrata or even a slather of goat cheese.
tomato, peach & avocado bruschetta
- 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
- drizzle of olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- drizzle of white balsamic vinegar
- 2-4 peaches, cut into small pieces
- 1 avocado, diced
- chopped basil and/or mint
- generous amounts of salt & pepper
- about 4 - 6 slices of bread
- Toss tomatoes in a small bowl with olive oil, white balsamic, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
- To that add the peaches, avocado, basil and mint and toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper as needed.
- Toast slices of bread and pile everything on top. Drizzle with more olive oil and serve immediately.
Love the peach in these! Perfect summertime app.
I have a box of lovely peaches sitting on my kitchen counter… I agree – I will be eating as many peaches as possible until the end of peach season. Thanks for the perfect recipe… I do believe I will try your burrata idea…
I’ve never tried peaches on bread but there is always a first time for everything. Looks yummy.
Sounds soooo good! Yum!
I love peaches. I love to cut them in half and grill them till you get delicious black char lines on them. Once cooled I think grilled peaches would ge a good twist on this recipe! So going to try this recipe, thank you.
definitely, grilled peaches are so amazing! I did this version a couple of years ago (that I still love!) w/ pesto & mozzarella: http://www.loveandlemons.com/2012/08/22/peach-pesto-crostini/
That recipe looks fab too! Mint and basil pesto- double yum! Thank you
Now I am dreaming of peaches. I am currently traveling in Bolvia, and nice ripe summer peach sounds so good right now. I actually had some Bruschetta at a local vegetarian restaurant here in Sucre, Bolivia this morning, but the garlic overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. (There was also a tourist bag theft in the middle of my meal, which was very dramatic, and rather unnerving) Can’t wait to start eating peaches again when I return home. Thanks for the inspiration!
This is a -great- new twist on bruschetta! So fresh.
I REALLY want to try a peach and goat cheese combo… SOunds so delicious! I only recently discovered white balsamic and sometimes I like it a lot more than regular red. I feel like the taste is more light and refined. Thanks for sharing! BTW, I posted a video on my YouTube channel a few days ago with 3 easy, fast and healthy recipes for summer breakfasts. Thought you might be interested… Here’s the link! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTadqrL6Dxg
Have a great week.
Bruschetta is a must for a summer menu, and peaches in the mix make it that much better. I am currently visiting family near Austin so I know how good the peaches are here. Great pairing with tomatoes and avocado!
Oh my, that really looks like summer on bread!
I will make it for sure!!! love the combination. Thank you so much!
That looks fab, unfortunately the peaches we get in the UK generally would not do this recipe justice !
this is a great way to utilize peaches..i cant get my hands on them.
Oh how clever! I love that mango salsa from Costco. Sweet, tomato, and avocado is such a wonderful combination!
Yumm… I have such an obsession with peaches this summer and this looks delicious!
Light, fresh and simple! Loving the flavors here!!!!! Pinning! 😀
I’ve never had peaches on bread. That looks great. I can’t wait until we can get some good peaches here in MN.
Oh I wish I could get summer peaches. I have a weakness for peaches on bread especially when you get such green Avos. Great Combo and beautiful photos.
