1 Adjust measurements to your taste
2. I did use less arugula in the bruschetta,
3. If you cant find ricotta salata use feta, gorgonzola or blue cheese
4. my balsamic dressing is basically 2 parts balsamic to 1 part extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, mixed together
5. Use a squeeze bottle to drizzle the dressing over the bruschetta
