Directions
For the bread:
  • Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Drizzle the bread slices with olive oil. Grill the bread until golden on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the bread, and squeeze the lemon juice over the bread slices. Sprinkle the bread slices with dried oregano, salt, and pepper.

For the topping:
  • In a medium bowl combine the ricotta, tomatoes, 3 tablespoons mint, salt, and pepper. Gently stir to combine.

  • To serve, either spoon the cheese topping over the bread and sprinkle more chopped mint over the bruschetta for garnish, or place the cheese topping in a bowl and serve with the grilled bread alongside.
