Herbed Ricotta Crostini with Radishes
Makes 8 servings
8 slices of good bread (seeded, baguette, sourdough...) cut into 1/4" thick slices
1 Tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
whole milk ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 Tablespoons mixture fresh herbs (basil, dill, tarragon, parsley, chives....)
1/4 cup radishes, sliced thin
Preheat oven to 350Â°
Place slices of bread on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over each piece and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
In a bowl, combine ricotta, lemon juice, herbs and salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning.
When the bread is golden brown remove from the oven and spread a thin layer of cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Top with a couple slices of radishes.
Serve with a side salad for a meal or alone for a snack.
* You can toast the bread in a toaster as well, just don't drizzle olive oil on before.
* This recipe is all about the quality of the cheese-DO NOT skimp on the cheese. I love
* This is not really a "recipe"-just use as little or as much of each ingredient. If you like it really lemony then add 1/2 a teaspoon of lemon zest to the cheese mixture.
