kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
8–10 slices (about 1/4-inch thick) of French baguette or ciabatta bread, toasted or grilled
Combine the cherries, balsamic vinegar, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, slice and toast or grill the bread. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the ricotta and honey until well-mixed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spread the ricotta onto the bread and top with the cherries. Serve immediately.
