fresh sweet cherries

French baguette

clove of garlic

ricotta cheese

honey

lemon zest

mint

The preparation of the bruschetta is the same regardless of the ingredients used.

You’ll slice the bread in half lengthwise, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and grill for a few minutes over a pre-heated low to medium heat grill (to get the baguette perfectly toasted.  You can also use the broiler.

Then, you’ll rub a clove of garlic over the baguette as the first layer of flavor.

If using the lemon ricotta honey mixture – you’ll mix together 4 oz of ricotta cheese with  2 tablespoons of honey.

Spread the cheese over the toasted bread.

Top with the quartered cherries

Garnish with mint or basil and a drizzle of honey.

Cut into 2-inch pieces and serve.

It’s best eaten right away because otherwise, the cheese and cherry juices soak into the bread making it chewy.
