1 medium scallion (white and green parts), very thinly sliced
1 tsp chopped fresh mint
1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
Pinch of cayenne; more to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 oz (1/3 cup) soft fresh goat cheese
2 1/2 oz (1/3 cup) ricotta cheese
18 1/2-inch-thick baguette slices, toasted

In a medium bowl, stir the cherries, jicama, scallion, mint vinegar, and cayenne. Season to taste with salt black pepper, and more cayenne.
