I love a good appetizer. In fact, appetizers might just be the best part of any and every meal for me – I could make a meal entirely out of apps. So of course, I love anything on a crostini.
I’ve been feeling inspired to make a crostini creation lately – in part because of Love & Lemons’ Fig, Feta and Mint Crostini and Chrissy Teigen’s “Sh*t on Toast” section of Cravings – and also because it’s a super easy vehicle for cheese.
I found some edible flowers during a shopping trip to Whole Foods last week, and took it as a sign. (Side note: edible flowers taste just like you would expect a flower to, so don’t set the bar too high). It’s also important to note that there are two kinds of cheese present in this appetizer: ricotta and feta. Plus, with peaches now in season, this recipe is a great excuse to get your fill!
- one sliced baguette, toasted; or a bag of pre-toasted crostini slices
- two fresh peaches
- one cup part skim ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- one bunch basil
- zest of 1 lemon, optional
- sea salt and pepper
- edible flowers (optional, but so fun)
