Mediterranean Bruschetta

This was another recipe I made for our most recent party.  It was really good and a nice change from regular bruschettta.

(pict from Food Network)

1 (1-pound) loaf ciabatta, cut into 1-inch wide slices
1/4 cup olive oil
1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta
2 large seeded and diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons finely chopped kalamata olives
3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil leaves plus whole leaves, for garnish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon dried oregano


Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Drizzle the bread with the olive oil and place onto preheated grill. Grill until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.

In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, tomatoes, olives, basil, and salt and pepper.

Squeeze lemon over the bread. Sprinkle bread with oregano and salt and pepper, to taste.

Place ricotta mixture on top of the grilled bread, garnish with basil leaves and serve.
