(originally made 8/24/2007)

Made this up for lunch today, easy and very good. Jake was underfoot so missed the olive oil step. Didn't have fresh herbs on hand, so subbed dried.

Herbed Ricotta and Tomato Bruschetta

1/4 cup whole milk ricotta cheese (used part skim)
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint (omitted)
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh tarragon
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 teaspoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley -- divided
8 slices country-style bread -- (1-ounce)
1 garlic clove -- halved
1 1/2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
1 large ripe tomato -- cut into 8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices (about 8 ounces)
1/8 teaspoon salt

Prepare grill. Combine first 6 ingredients; stir in 1 tablespoon parsley.

Place bread slices on grill rack; grill 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Rub one side of each bread slice with cut sides of garlic. Discard garlic. Brush oil evenly over garlic-rubbed sides of bread slices. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons ricotta mixture over each bread slice; top each serving with 1 tomato slice. Sprinkle salt and remaining 1 teaspoon parsley evenly over the tomatoes. Serve immediately.

8 servings (serving size: 1 piece)
