Last time I shared how easy it is to make homemade ricotta cheese.  Fresh ricotta is hard to resist on its own, but spread on toasted baguette slices and topped with strawberries, basil, and a drizzle of honey?  These bruschetta are completely irrisistible!  Once you’ve got the ricotta made, this is an easy appetizer that you can assemble in just a few minutes.  We’ve even made dinner out of these, along with some fresh fruit or veggies on the side.  Bread, cheese, and juicy summer strawberries… what more could you want?

If you’re able to share these by bringing them to a potluck or dinner party, I’m sure your friends will be extremely grateful.  But I won’t blame you if you decide to make these just for yourself.  I know whenever I make them I end up eating way too many.  These Strawberry-Basil Bruschetta with Fresh Ricotta are addicting little bites!

  1. Wow. These look fabulous. I could see the strawberries macerating in a little white balsamic first, as well, to make them a bit more on the savory side. Lovely!!!
