Ricotta and Smoked-Salmon Bruschetta

Recipe for Ricotta and Smoked-Salmon Bruschetta


1 fresh baguette, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, halved
1 pound fresh, best quality ricotta cheese
4 ounces sliced smoked salmon
Freshly ground black pepper
Minced chives


Preheat oven to 375°F. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat one side of each bread slice with olive oil; then rub with the raw side of the garlic clove.

Place bread slices on a cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes, until edges just begin to brown. Remove toasted bread and cool on racks.

On each piece of toast, spread a heaping tablespoon of fresh ricotta; then lay a strip of smoked salmon on top. Season with pepper to taste and garnish with chives.
