Remember our summer picnic from last week? I promised i’ll share all the recipes with you, so here’s the next one. 

I love ricotta for it’s fresh, tart taste, and when combined with basil and tomatoes, it really shines. And these mini tomato ricotta tarts are a must have at your next picnic or brunch or tea party because they make for the perfect bite-sized appetizer.

For some reason, all our food at this picnic bordered on dessert. Probably because we are a bunch with a sweet tooth. Not that I’m complaining, but these tarts did add a nice balance to the selection. 

And who knew that something as simple as tarts, tomatoes, basil and cheese could become such a showstopper at our summer table? I love serving these with our Mint Cooler Iced Tea or if you’d rather something warm, try the Darjeeling White Tea.

 

A fresh, refreshing take on tea time tarts, these mini tomato ricotta tarts are a guaranteed show stopper at any summer table!
