Lightly brush each side of bread with olive oil and grill or broil or until nicely toasted on both sides.

In a small bowl toss together the nectarines, tomatoes and red onion.

Spoon the tomato mixture onto the grilled bread. 

Sprinkle with the crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil.

Drizzle a little of the balsamic syrup over each slice and sprinkle with sea salt.
