The weather may still be snowy and chilly here, but my mind is set on spring. So much so that I trudged through the snow this morning to get the ingredients to make these delicious, spring-inspired crostini for lunch today. I also stopped by my favourite local Bakery – Stella’s – to pick up some whole wheat foccacia and a pear almond tart. Yum!
These crostini made for a perfect light lunch! The ricotta was perfectly flavoured with bright lemon zest, lemon juice and fresh herbs. I used fresh mint and dill for the crostini I made, but I bet that flat-leaf parsley and chives would be wonderful too. I really enjoyed the earthy, mildly spicy radishes a top the crostini, but you can use any of your favourite veggies. I think cucumber slices or thinly sliced yellow beets would also be a really nice option. These crostini are the perfect way to celebrate the coming of sping. (It’s IS coming….right!? hehe!) They are great for a simple, light lunch. They would also work great as an appetizer for a dinner party or as a contribution to a wedding or baby shower.
