Grilled Bread with Ricotta & Tomatoes
1 garlic clove
- Kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 3/4 pound assorted small tomatoes (such as cherry, Sun Gold, or green), halved, quartered if large
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 8 3/4"-thick slices country-style bread
- 1 cup (loosely packed) coarsely chopped mixed tender herbs (such as basil, parsley, small dill sprigs, and/or chives)
- 10 ounces whole-milk ricotta
Finely chop garlic, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, then mash with the side of knife to a fine paste. Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil. Add tomatoes; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let sit, tossing occasionally, for at least 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare grill for medium-high heat. Brush both sides of bread with remaining 4 tablespoons oil and grill until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side.
Just before serving, toss herbs with tomato mixture. Spread ricotta on toast and top with tomato mixture; cut toast in half.
**Use very ripe—even overripe—tomatoes; they'll give up even more juice.
** Tomato mixture (without herbs) can be made 12 hours ahead. Cover and chill
Health & Wellness Corner
It’s a New Year! Let’s start it off right by taking care of ourselves.
Here are a few simple steps to get you going on the right track…
- Write it down. Post your goals and exercise plan where you will see it!
- Do Not set a difficult goal. Start off easy with 5 minutes a day and work your way up. This will help build the habit of exercising.
- Be specific. Pick an activity you enjoy, pick the time of day (if possible), and where you will exercise.
- Measurable goals. Stick to this one goal for at least a month. Then change it up a bit for your next goal. Keep it interesting!
- Motivation! Get out your headphones and listen to music that will get you moving!
Hang that shirt or dress that’s too small in a visible place as motivation.
A cardio workout improves the function and health of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. Weight-bearing exercises enhance the function and health of the bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissues.
Here’s to a healthy and happy New Year!!
