Project Fairytale: Crostini with Ricotta, Cherry and Lemon Zest

By the time you are reading this I must have landed in Nairobi and I really hope I am enjoying a delicious local meal (this week all the posts are scheduled). I will come back with all my Kenyan adventures, but if you are searching for a meal that would transport you to the warm summer days (I should be enjoying around 30°C) these crostinis should do the trick.

 

 

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces (1 1/4 cups) pitted, chopped sweet cherries
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 4 slices rustic bread
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh ricotta
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine cherries and sugar; let macerate 10 minutes.
  2. Brush bread with olive oil and toast until golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Mix ricotta with lemon zest. Spread bread with ricotta and top with cherries. Garnish with more zest.
