This simple Sweet Peach Bruschetta combines the best flavors of Summer! Fresh peaches, blueberries and mint make for an impressive combination!
The past year has been a tough year for friendships. I have a group of girlfriends who I am close with but as we have gotten older and started careers and families it has been so difficult to stop and take time to maintain our friendships. We have moved a little further apart so we don’t see each other often, and trying to schedule a dinner around work and school and kids can be really tough. But I was determined to make it happen! We finally set a date and had a fun evening of easy appetizers, tasty wine and lots of great conversations!
The biggest hit of the night was this super easy Sweet Peach Bruschetta. This is a summer appetizer that absolutely anyone can make because the seasonal ingredients make it seem a lot more complex than it really is! We take a nice slice of crusty, toasted bread (I used gluten free, of course) slather it with whipped cream cheese, wild blueberry preserves, juicy fresh peaches, blueberries and top it with honey, crushed almonds and mint! This combines some of summers best flavors into one delicious dish!
I paired this Sweet Peach Bruschetta with one of my new favorite wines, oaky and buttery Chardonnay and fruity and crisp Chardonnay. If you haven’t tried this refreshing wine you’ve got to pick up a bottle for your next summer get together. The wines have two very unique flavor profiles, both of which paired great with this Sweet Peach Bruschetta.
The first is Notable: Oaky & Buttery Chardonnay it has flavor notes of butter, oak and vanilla. The second, and my favorite is Notable: Fruity & Crisp Chardonnay. It has flavor notes of peaches, melon and citrus. I especially loved how well this paired with the fresh peaches and blueberries in the bruschetta.
If you are new to wine pairing Notable is the first wine that highlights the flavor profiles on the front of the bottle, helping make the wine aisle a less confusing place.This is great because wines often vary in region and taste, yet most labels don’t define the dominate flavor you’re about to sip. So when a wine highlights its taste prominently on the front label, it can lead you to the wine you want. All you have to do is follow the flavor notes!
So gather your girlfriends and host a summer get together you will all love! With this easy Sweet Peach Bruschetta and a bottle of Notable Chardonnay summer entertaining just got a lot easier!
