Mixed Herbs and Tomato on Grilled Country-Style Bread

What you need:

  • 8 slices country-style bread (about 3/4-inch thick each)
  • 1/4 kilogram assorted small tomatoes, halved
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped and mashed to a paste
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk ricotta
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped mixed herbs
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together garlic paste, 2 tablespoons olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat tomatoes with garlic mixture. Let sit for about 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Meanwhile, brush bread slices with remaining olive oil then heat on a grill over medium-high heat for 2 minutes per side or until lightly charred. To serve, stir in herbs to tomato mixture. Spread ricotta over each grilled bread slice then top with tomato mixture.
