Ricotta Tomato Toast is a simple but delicious appetizer that is absolutely perfect for summer entertaining!
One of my favorite parts of traveling is the inspiration that it gives me in the kitchen once I’m back home. I love recreating dishes that we tried on our trips, or putting my own unique spin on things. Our recent trip to Italy inspired this delicious Ricotta Tomato Toast. We had an amazing bruschetta in Portofino and I couldn’t wait to make my own version. A tomato toast is the perfect summer party appetizer. I think summer appetizers should be easy to prepare – but still beautiful and delicious. This ricotta tomato toast checks all the boxes. And it pairs perfectly with a wine from The Seeker – because you can’t have summer entertaining without a nice glass of wine!
I am obsessed with Heirloom tomatoes right now. I actually don’t even know if they taste better than regular red tomatoes, but something about the color of them makes them so much fun to eat! And, so much fun to cook with. They instantly dress up any dish you make, and they are the star of my tomato toast. One bite, and you will be transported right to Italy. Just like one sip of The Seeker wine will take you on a global taste journey. They have wines from all over the world, a carefully curated collection of the best wines from where they grow best, each wine lovingly crafted by a different family winery. So no matter what varietal you pick, you know it is going to be the best. We particularly loved their Malbec – so smooth with a great flavor.
Another reason why I love serving The Seeker wine at my summer parties is because the company is globally conscious, dedicated to leaving a small carbon footprint. They use lightweight glass, recycled and recyclable, locally-sourced packaging materials wherever possible and their winemakers are committed to sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery. Doing good for the earth while enjoying good wine (and food) – that’s a win win!
This tomato toast is so simple to make, it is hardly a real recipe! Sometimes, those are the best kinds. All you need to do is slice up a great loaf of bread – I like my no-knead bread. Drizzle it with some olive oil and toast it until it is nice and golden brown. Then, spread with a thin layer of ricotta, and layer on some sliced heirloom tomatoes. Finish the toast off with salt, pepper, and some fresh basil and you have a delicious and easy summer appetizer ready to go.
