HOW TO SERVE RICOTTA BRUSCHETTA

Ricotta bruschetta is a wonderful and beautiful antipasto but also a light lunch or a gourmet brunch dish. 

The contrast of flavors and textures of this bruschetta with ricotta is surprising and so pleasant to the palate, you’ll want to make it again and again, believe me! 

Give yourself the time to slowly enjoy every bite, every juicy explosion in your mouth smoothed by the ricotta cheese, and the adventurous crunchiness of the bread.

HOW TO MAKE RICOTTA BRUSCHETTA WITH GRILLED CHERRY TOMATOES 

To make this delightful ricotta and grilled tomatoes bruschetta, all you have to do is shortly marinate the cherry tomatoes and grill them – using skewers to simplify things and to perfectly grill both sides of each red pearl. And toast the bread, but that’s quite easy!

Also, leave the ricotta out of the fridge for at least thirty minutes before topping the bread. You’ll better savor its full flavor.
