Vegetarian of Vegan?

If you keep the ricotta cheese separate, this is a great vegan option. Place the ricotta in a separate bowl so that it is an easy option for those who want to add a dollop of the creamy, delicious cheese to the top of the Cherry Tomato Bruschetta. An amazing appetizer or side dish with or without the cheese!
