Ricotta, Basil, and Strawberry Toast

By Abby Henry Singh March 30, 2018Breakfast, Recipes

This toast is the perfect combination of savory and sweet flavors. It’s light and refreshing and works well with any type of berry in season. Berries are one of AICR’s Foods that Fight Cancer – and are particularly high in ellagic acid, a phytochemical that has been shown to have strong cancer-protective properties.


  • 1 slice whole grain bread, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp ricotta cheese
  • 3 fresh basil leaves, sliced into strips
