These tartines are assembled on long slices of crisply toasted baguette topped with a mash of garlic and herb Boursin®, cut with ricotta and goat cheese to make it spreadable. On top, chopped tomatoes, sweet and crunchy, with a drizzle of olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. I love these for lunch or even breakfast. Satisfying, but uncomplicated.

I've made this recipe three times now and it has been a hit each time. Every last piece disappeared! They key to success with this is using a high quality bread and fresh basil and grape tomatoes. It doesn't need much salt. I served this as an appetizer. Read More
