  • 16 ( ½ inch) slices whole-grain baguette
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 medium peaches, cut into ½-inch wedges
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • 6 cups baby arugula
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Brush both sides of bread with 2 tablespoons oil. Toss peaches in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Grill the peaches until lightly marked and softened, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Return to the bowl. Grill the bread until lightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  3. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a small bowl. Add arugula and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to wilt, about 1 minute. Gently stir the greens, lemon zest and lemon juice into the peaches.
  4. Top each crostini with some of the peach mixture, a little bacon and flaky salt, if using.
  • To make ahead: Hold at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
