Ingredients

  • 2

    pounds cherries

  • 1

    cup basil (thinly sliced)

  • 1/8

    cups sugar

  • 1/2

    cups ricotta

  • 1/2

    teaspoons vanilla

  • 8

    slices whole grain bread

Directions

Basil Marinated Cherries: Cut cherries in half, removing seed, and place in large jar or medium bowl. Add sugar and basil, tossing to coat. Cover and let marinate in refrigerator at least overnight. Sugar will allow cherries to release juice. Vanilla Ricotta Toast: In food processor or small bowl, stir/whip together vanilla and ricotta cheese. Toast bread, if desired, and smear ricotta on toast. Top with marinated cherries and sprinkle of basil. Optional, but recommended: Reduce cherry sauce to a syrup consistency by placing juice in a small saucepan over low heat for 5-7 minutes. When juice thickens, drizzle over toast and enjoy!
