A lovely summer starter is crisp bread topped with ricotta that is creamy, vibrant, and flavored with lemon and chives.

This simple snack gets a boost in both flavor and nutrients from the addition of tomato and basil.

Today is the day that I give my home its annual spring cleaning, so I’m going to make this one brief and then get back to work.

My father is in town for a visit, which is wonderful because he is the least expensive source of labor available. As long as I keep the beer stocked in the refrigerator, he is a content individual.

You could say that this was a gourmet beer snack that we enjoyed yesterday evening. I think that makes sense. Not a combination that I would ever suggest, but then again, my father is not the “pairing” type.

This ricotta mixture is airy and subdued; it does not pack a powerful punch of garlicky or herbaceous taste; rather, it is fresh and has a hint of sweetness. Naturally, you are able to modify it in order to make it any level of boldness that you like.

  1. Sprinkle a little bit of salt on the bread pieces after you have seasoned them with olive oil. Toast the bread on the grill or under the broiler.
  2. Cut each clove of garlic in half lengthwise. After the bread has been toasted to your satisfaction, massage it with the exposed side of the garlic clove. Set aside.
  3. After slicing it, salting it, and setting it aside, the tomato was prepared.
  4. Ricotta, lemon juice, lemon zest, minced garlic, honey, chives, and a few pinches each of salt and pepper should be combined in a mixing bowl. Taste it, then adjust the seasonings as necessary.
  5. Put everything together and finish it off with some chopped basil and sprouts.
