Here’s a delicious summer breakfast or snack that really shines when made with fresh-picked berries or cherries and a sturdy bread like Pugliese, sourdough, or pumpernickel.
1pint fresh berries or cherries (any type)
3/4cup ricotta cheese (or goat cheese)
1 tablespoon honey or 1 tablespoon blackberry or raspberry preserves
4 slices buttered toast
1/4cup chopped pistachios
Honey for drizzling
Wash and drain the fruit. If using strawberries, slice them. Cherries should be sliced and pitted. Swirl ricotta with the honey or preserves. Spread on toast and top with berries and pistachios. Drizzle with more honey, if you like.
