  • Italian bread, sliced
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh garlic, minced
  • Fresh basil, chopped
  • White balsamic vinegar
  • Maldon salt (or any flaky sea salt)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried oregano


  1. Prepare the Marinated Tomatoes:
    • In a bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, minced garlic, chopped basil, a drizzle of olive oil, and a splash of white balsamic vinegar.
    • Season the mixture with Maldon salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
    • Let the mixture sit for a bit to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Season the Ricotta:
    • In a separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese with garlic powder and dried oregano. Adjust the quantities to taste, ensuring a well-seasoned ricotta mixture.
  3. Toast the Bread:
    • Toast slices of Italian bread until they are golden and crisp. You can do this in a toaster, under a broiler, or on a grill for added flavor.
  4. Assemble the Bruschetta Toast:
    • Once the bread is toasted, smear each slice generously with the seasoned ricotta mixture.
    • Top with a spoonful of the tomato and basil mixture.
  5. Final Touches:
    • Finish each piece of bruschetta with an additional drizzle of olive oil.
    • Sprinkle a tiny pinch of Maldon salt and a twist of black pepper over the top for added flavor and texture.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve immediately while the toast is warm and the ricotta is cool and creamy against the tangy, marinated tomatoes.
