Our Peach Bruschetta Is Bursting With Fresh Summer Flavor

Summer is that beautiful time of year when both peaches and tomatoes are in season and peak quality, and this easy appetizer celebrates that. We combine peaches and tomatoes in this sweet-salty snack that goes perfectly on top of golden brown baguette slices. Tossing the fruit with just a little salt and olive oil makes the fruit shine and keeps things tasting fresh and sweet. Ready in 30 minutes, this is a great appetizer to serve at a no-frills summer dinner party, but could easily make a great lunch as well with minimal effort.

We upgraded classic bruschetta with one of our favorite creamy ingredients: ricotta. After toasting our baguette slices, we spread a ricotta and lemon zest mixture on the slices before topping with this peach and tomato bruschetta. Top these off with a little hot honey for a hint of sweet heat that complements the peaches so well.
