Picturesque Country Bread with Ricotta, Cherry Tomatoes, and Basil

Not just pretty to look at, but also satisfied to the palate. 

Country bread with Ricotta, cherry tomatoes, and basil -


  • Some slices country bread
  • Some cherry tomatoes (colorful variety even better)
  • Some ricotta cheese
  • Some basil leaves
  • Some balsamic vinegar
  • Some salt
  • Some black pepper


Spread some ricotta cheese onto the country bread slices. Top with halved cherry tomatoes.

Sprinkle some salt and black pepper. No need to drizzle over olive oil for this recipe. Into the oven using high heat, toast till the cherry tomatoes shrink a wee bit, but not burning or over-hardening the bread slices.

Once ready, remove from heat then drizzle over some balsamic vinegar. Garnish with basil leaves in between tomatoes.

Super easy to make and the result can't be more satisfying. Use balsamic reduction if available, just a few drops makes a big difference.

By the way, this recipe was kind of vague since all the ingredients used were noted as "some" instead of exact portion. No strict rules here, spread more ricotta if you'd like, add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It's so simple, just trust your gut feelings, nothing major can go wrong with this recipe.

Wait, maybe one thing. Do not over-toast the bread slices in the oven especially we are using high heat here. Just warm enough so the edge of the bread gets crunchy. Also with the help of the heat, we can further condense the flavors for these juicy tomatoes.
