Ingredients

  • 1 French baguette

  • olive oil

  • 3 medium watermelon radishes or 1 large white radish

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese

  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon, chopped

  • pinch of salt

  • additional olive oil, tarragon, and salt and pepper to garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut baguette diagonally into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices; brush both sides of slices with olive oil and bake on a baking sheet 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, turning halfway through. Meanwhile, trim and cut radishes into very thin slices; cut slices into matchstick strips.

  2. In a small bowl stir together ricotta cheese, lemon zest, tarragon, and salt. Spread toasted bread slices with cheese mixture. Top with radish strips; drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with additional chopped fresh tarragon and salt plus pepper to taste. Makes 12 to 15 crostini.

Tips

If desired, swap 1 5.3-ounce package garlic and herb goat cheese for the ricotta. Stir in 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and omit the pinch salt.
