In this case, sharp, tangy Feta is whipped into a delectable frenzy of flavor, with Greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon, and red pepper flakes. Next, it’s layered atop buttery, lightly toasted focaccia bread, and crowned with peaches that have been sweetly caramelized by roasting or grilling. A final drizzle of rich, dark balsamic vinegar glaze, and a dusting of crunchy pine nuts & fragrant rosemary really make this
