This nectarine, goat cheese and honey bruschetta is a beautiful appetizer for any party and can be
pulled together in less than 15 minutes.
I’m trying to get back into a schedule now that my girls are headed back to school. I still have two at home who will be homeschooled but I am not quite ready to give up Summer yet. We will just continue to enjoy the next couple of weeks and will start after Labor Day. Until we start school we will just enjoy the time we have to relax and get some things done. One thing I am waiting for is our peach tree to ripen. I cannot wait to harvest the peaches even though we had one branch that broke. It was so heavy with peaches and even after thinning it and bracing, it still broke under the pressure. It is so sad.
Because I’m still waiting for peaches I decided the next best thing would be some nectarines. I was at the grocery store the other day and the nectaraines were beautiful so I decided to grab a baguette to make some bruschetta. I also saw that they had some micro greens that would be pretty to add on, they taste like sprouts and would be a great addition to this appetizer.
Just slice your baguette and toast in oven for a few minutes, remove from oven and drizzle on some olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt. I had some beautiful blood orange olive oil from We Olive and it was amazing with the nectarines. Top with some goat cheese and sliced nectarines, pop back into the oven for a couple of minutes to heat through and remove and drizzle with your favorite honey. I love a local honey, we buy a couple of jars at the beginning of Spring for allergies and one of our favorites this year comes from Hollow Tree Honey in Utah and is a wildflower honey from the Wasatch Mountains. Garnish with some microgreens or edible flowers and you have yourself a beautiful, tasty appetizer.
Enjoy and be sure to save the recipe to your Pinterest Boards.
**I recommend just getting a regular baguette and not sour dough. We tried both and felt that the sour dough was a little too sour with the goat cheese.
