Ricotta Toast with Cherries is the easiest appetizer to make. Not only it takes less than 10 minutes to do, they are creamy, sweet, savory & crunchy. Everyone will go crazy over these toast!
I have to admit that I’m having cherry fever. We have been enjoying the rosemary cherry compote for the whole week. It really was amazing!
Since I want to make more compote, we were planning to go to cherry picking (there is one in Los Angeles). Here is the thing, we tried to go 3 times this month. First time, the farm was closed unexpectedly as I told you last week. Second time, there was a family emergency, so we couldn’t go. And this morning, there was a huge car accident on the only freeway that go to the farm. All lanes were closed. Yup, it’s a jinx. I’m not supposed to go.
It’s ok… I will just buy some cherries and make more compote. When you have the compote, you have to try this toast! Creamy, crunchy, sweet & savory. Nothing complicated. Just buttered toast, ricotta, salt & cherry compote. Took 10 minutes to make and they are the perfect appetizer!
Happy 4th of July!!! 🇺🇸
