Fig and Ricotta Toast

There is something so simplistic and satisfying about toast and creamy ricotta! This rendition has ripe fig slices, fresh mint, and a drizzle of sweet clover honey. Figs pair wonderfully with honey, as they have a similar intense sweetness. The mint gives the toast a beautifully fresh taste. This simple five-ingredient Mediterranean bite is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party or to enjoy as a heavenly snack. Take advantage of this toast when figs are in their peak season, at the beginning of June and August through October!

The Ingredients Are Below 

Toast: This toast is fantastic on a crusty Italian loaf or tangy sourdough. I love when the outside of the toast is browned and crispy, and the inner part is still soft. Also, tiny bread holes are perfect for the ricotta and honey to seep into.

Ricotta: This smooth and thick cheese is perfect for spreading. I used whole milk ricotta in this recipe, but you can substitute for a lesser percentage. Just concentrate on buying the best possible quality, as the cheese is the star of the recipe. 

Mint: The mint adds a lovely herbaceous quality to the ricotta and a delicacy to the toast. It has just the right amount of freshness to cut through the thickness of the ricotta and the honey’s tackiness. 

Figs: There are six different types of figs: Black Mission, Brown Turkey, Sierra, Calimyrna, King, and Kadota. Black missions are probably the most popular as they are extra sweet and gummy. But I love the green color of Kadota figs as well, as they have a smother and softer sweetness. Any variety of fig will work for this recipe; just make sure the fruit is ripe and juicy. 

Honey: I love trying different organic local kinds of honey and comparing their subtleties. Any honey is fantastic on this toast, but I think fragrant honey is best.
