Peach Tomato and Mozzarella Crostini

This is soooo delicious!  I am quite positive this is my new favorite combination of flavors.  This is the perfect way to eat fresh peaches and tomatoes while they are in season.  They taste so amazing and delicious together.  I don't think it gets much better than this!

Peach Tomato and Mozzarella Crostini

Baguette sliced and toasted in butter or olive oil
Fresh, ripe peaches, sliced thin
Fresh, summer tomatoes, sliced thin
Fresh mozzarella, removed from water and sliced
Fresh basil, sliced in thin ribbons
Coarse salt and freshly cracked pepper
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar or honey 

Bring the vinegar and brown sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Turn the heat to low and reduce until syrupy. The vinegar will thicken as it cools. Refrigerate in a covered container.

Top toasted baguette with a slice of peach, a slice of tomato, a slice of mozzarella, and a second slice of peach.  Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.  Top with basil and a drizzle of the reduced balsamic vinegar.  Serve immediately.
