This recipe is simple, elegant, and easy to tinker with. It’s beautiful and delicious with the most simple of balsamic vinegars… but is *mind blowingly amazing* if you can get your hands on peach balsamic vinegar.

3Fresh Peacheshusks removed
3tablespoonPeach White Balsamic VinegarOr Balsamic vinegar of Choice
¼cupFresh BasilCut into thin strips
¼ cupOlive Oil
Using a sharp knife, carefully chop peaches into small pieces.
In a large bowl, combine peaches, honey, and balsamic vinegar, tossing to coat.
Stir in basil, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cut baguette into ¼-1/2″ thick slices – I like to cut them at a bit of an angle. Brush both sides of each bread slice with olive oil, arrange on a broiling pan.
Broil bread slices for 3 minutes, flip them all over, and broil for another 2 minutes.
Remove from oven, spread each slice with some goat cheese, top with peach mixture.
Variations:– Add in diced fresh tomato– Try chili flakes, for a bit of a kick– Try different fresh herbs – dill, tarragon, parsley, thyme, mint, cilantro…– Add a pressed garlic clove– Swap the goat cheese for mascarpone, ricotta, or cream cheese– Add a little finely chopped onion
