Oil-slicked toast, sweet ricotta, ripe figs, and seedy honey are ideal fuel for a day of swimming, surfing, or hiking. If you can’t find ripe fresh figs, grapes make a great sweet substitute. “Grilled grapes taste like toasted marshmallows,” says O’Connor.

How to Make It

1

 In a small bowl, combine the seeds and honey and mix. 

2

Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Cut the bread into thick slices and drizzle with oil. Toast bread on grill until warmed through and lightly browned, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.

3

Scoop the ricotta onto a plate and arrange jam and figs on and around the ricotta. Drizzle the honey-seed mixture over the top and serve with the hot toast.
