- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped (any ripe tomatoes will do)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 5 to 8 basil leaves (to taste), coarsely chopped
- Olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 cup fresh ricotta
- Baguette, cut in half lengthwise and then into 8 pieces
Stir ricotta cheese until smooth and add salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare a grill – I prefer charcoal but gas works as does toasting in the oven. Drizzle olive oil on baguette pieces, and place on grill until bread begins to brown. Remove from heat.
Spread ricotta over hot bread, then spoon tomato-basil salad on top. Done!
