Bruschetta With Ricotta and Olive-Tomato Relish

Recipe by KathyP53

The broiled ricotta has a sweetness that balances wonderfully with the olive and herby tomatoes.

Made this for thanksgiving. Everybody loved it and could not get enough of it. Very very good lots of flavor. My soon to be mother in law is going to make it for a party at work. The only flaw was that the olives were left out in the directions so dont forget about them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomatoes with shallot, parsley, oregano, vinegar, lemon zest, red pepper and the 2 tablespoons of oil. Season with salt.
  3. Brush bread slices on both sides with oil and bake for about 10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Rub lightly with garlic clove.
  4. Preheat broiler and position a rack 6" from heat. Spread ricotta in a shallow medium gratin dish in a 3/4" thick layer. Drizzle with oil and brown for about 10 minutes, turning the dish occasionally, until ricotta is bubbling and brown. Remove from oven, spoon relish on, and top with chopped olives. Serve with garlic toasts.
