Peach & blueberry bruschetta with ricotta
For an appetizer, a snack, or even breakfast, the simple combination of peaches, blueberries, and ricotta makes an elegant topping for bruschetta.
The moment I discovered this recipe, I knew it was going to change my potluck game forever. Oh, and also breakfast. Leftovers make the perfect breakfast.
Change out the fruit for whatever you prefer, but I like peaches and blueberries for this time of year.
