What is Berry & Ricotta Bruschetta?

Berry and ricotta bruschetta is a twist on the classic bruschetta.  Rather than tomatoes and basil, we have topped our toasted baguette with creamy ricotta and fresh berries.  We have made a sweet and warm dressing and added mint for brightness.

Berry & Ricotta Bruschetta Q&A

How do you keep bruschetta from getting soggy?

Toasting your bread first helps prevent a soggy appetizer.  I like broiling, but you can also grill the baguette slices.

What does bruschetta mean?

Bruschetta means bread with topping, so it can be a variety of toasted bread with toppings.

Can I make this ahead?

You can toast the bread about 30 minutes ahead, but I do not recommend assembling them until right before serving.
