In the meantime, brush one side of sliced bread with olive oil and grill on a pan or grill pan if you have one. Toast bread for about 2-3 minutes, flipping once.
To serve, spread the ricotta over each toast and top with assorted citrus segments. Drizzle with olive oil and honey, to taste. We love a sprinkle of flaky salt as well.
