PEACH & PROSCIUTTO CROSTINI brings the flavours of summertime to your next party!

This is one of those casual party snacks or appetizers I often prepare soon after guests arrive. I love assembling these PEACH & PROSCIUTTO CROSTINI with guests looking on, seeing their excitement at how simple they are to make. Funny how I always get a kick out of the “Oh, I am so making this!” Be prepared to hear each and every time.

Because this recipe is a keeper, we suggest you remember to click the PIN further down in this post. You can also send the full post or video to friends so they can make it too. It’s delicious and very popular.

Here’s how I like to make these PEACH & PROSCIUTTO CROSTINI:

Thinly sliced prosciutto

PROSCIUTTO

The saltiness of this thinly sliced, smoked Italian ham pairs perfectly with the cheese and peach. I’ve listed about 12 slices for this recipe, which translates to about 125 grams. You can also omit the meat altogether if you’d rather enjoy a vegetarian version; it will still taste wonderful.

Freshly picked peaches

PEACHES

Look for those perfectly ripened freestone peaches, preferably grown locally. Nice thing about using them for this recipe is that if you have leftovers, you can always make a PEACH PIE or our PEACH COBBLER! We’ll leave that decision up to you.

Ricotta cheese spread on toasted slices of French baguette

RICOTTA

Ricotta is a light, whipped Italian cheese often used in layered pasta dishes. It’s also popular as a spreadable and acts as a creamy base on top of the baguette before we layer on the other flavours.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Don’t overthink it. Toast or grill up the slices of baguette and spread the ricotta on them. Add a length of prosciutto and a small helping of the peaches tossed with the red onion. Think of the honey, balsamic, salt and pepper as the icing on the cake. It’s all quite amazing.

Peach & Prosciutto Crostini

This easy appetizer goes well with some of our other party snacks. I love serving it with AJVAR, a red pepper dip, and these SALMON FETA CUCUMBER BITES. Need a refreshing cocktail? Try our FLOR DE SEVILLA SPRITZ or our classic PIMM’S CUP.
