Strawberry Ricotta Bruschetta

Thursday, August 12, 2021
Strawberry season, brunch, and bruschetta, oh my! Yes, this is over the top a sweet appetizer that's decadently delicious!

Freshly sliced strawberries on top of olive oil infused toast spread with ricotta, chopped basil drizzled with a good grade of balsamic vinegar or glaze, these flavors are delightful.

The wonderful berries have just the right sweetness for the bounty of a summer of fresh fruit with a creamy Italian cheese that compliments each other perfectly

For a wonderful addition to any brunch or starter before dinner and even a quick snack, this bruschetta is divine.

Quick easy and delicious appetizers you can make in 10 to 12 minutes.

Add a delicious side antipasto escarole salad and that lighter summer meal is complete.

Just remember to use all fresh ingredients, nothing compares, and this will be a hit no matter who you serve it to if you leave them any!

Everything Fresh is Best!



This appetizer is perfect since you can change the toppings and get so creative with them.


Use fresh fruit of any kind, strawberries are a favorite here but you can use any kind of fruits see below for suggestions.


I prefer an 18 year aged balsamic vinegar or a homemade reduction made into a glaze (recipe is below).


These are perfect for entertaining guests or bringing to any dinner party in a pinch, really easy and quite impressive, and a showstopper on your table!
