Crumble feta cheese; reserve 2 tbsp in refrigerator. In food processor, purée remaining feta, yogurt, honey, oil and lemon zest and juice until combined and slightly lumpy (if necessary, add up to 2 tbsp yogurt to reach desired consistency). Season with pepper. Set aside in refrigerator. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 3 days.)
Preheat barbecue to medium heat (about 350°F). Brush peaches, corncobs, tomatoes and bread slices with 2 tbsp of the oil. Place corn on grill, close lid and cook, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Place peaches, tomatoes and bread on grill; continue cooking, turning halfway through grilling time, until vegetables are grill-marked and bread is crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer bread slices to large serving platter and vegetables to cutting board.
Rub grilled bread slices with cut side of garlic cloves. Peel peaches, if desired. Dice peaches and tomatoes and place in two separate bowls. Remove corn kernels from cobs; place in third bowl. Add 1 tbsp of the basil, 2 tsp of the oregano and 1 tsp of remaining oil to each bowl; toss gently to mix.
On each bread slice, spread 2 tbsp reserved Whipped Feta. Top 4 slices with corn mixture, 4 with peach mixture and 4 with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with reserved crumbled feta cheese. Drizzle with balsamic glaze, if using, and sprinkle with fresh herbs, if desired.
Test kitchen tip
Grilled peaches and tomatoes produce a lot of juice, so it’s best to slightly drain the fruit and vegetable mixtures before topping bread slices. The remaining juices can be used as a base for a vinaigrette. Yum!
