Cherry Bruschetta Recipe with Whipped Goat Cheese and Ricotta
This Cherry Bruschetta Recipe with Whipped Goat Cheese and Ricotta is a fun, fresh, and easy summer snack or appetizer. Made with freshly grilled bread, sweet plums, cherries, and creamy whipped goat cheese and ricotta, these delicious toasts are the perfect combination of sweet and savory.
FOR THE CHERRY BRUSCHETTA
In a medium bowl combine the pitted and chopped cherries, chopped plums and a splash of orange juice. Gently toss to combine. Set aside.
In the meantime, in a separate bowl whip together the ricotta, goat cheese, honey, and fresh rosemary. Season to taste with additional honey or rosemary, if desired. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
FOR THE GRILLED BREAD
Cut bread into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Brush each side with a light layer of olive oil.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Once warm, add the bread to the grill and toast for approximately 2 minutes, or until grill marks form. Flip, and grill the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes more. Remove.
Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the goat cheese and ricotta mixture over each piece of grilled bread. Top each piece of bread with prosciutto, the cherry and plum mixture, and fresh basil. Drizzle with additional honey, if desired.
