Here's an interesting spin on bruschetta. A creamy ricotta cheese spread is the ideal complement to the sweet, minty strawberry topping. —Laura Murphy, Jackson, Mississippi

    A great way to use up small strawberries. We cut up the berries, added the honey and mint, and let them sit for a little while to let the flavors meld. You can substitute other flavored kinds of honey for the regular honey for a slightly different flavor. Great summertime treat!
