Easy Tomato and Ricotta Salad
A fresh and full of flavor Italian salad with tomatoes, ricotta, nuts and dressing.
Fresh Heirloom tomatoes or 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
(or halved if cherry tomatoes, quartered if using large tomatoes)
roasted and lightly salted
Sunflower seeds roasted
a little drizzle of honey
kosher salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl, add the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and a sprinkle of salt and pepper and whisk well.
Throw in your quartered tomatoes, roasted pistachios and sunflower seeds and toss to combine in the vinaigrette.
Now add small spoonfuls of the ricotta to the 2 plates making sure it is evenly distributed on the plates. (You can also just add all of it to one plate and let people serve themselves.)
Evenly plate the tomatoes mixture on to two plates.
Serve as is or with garlic crostini.
Here is my
favorite crostini recipe
. Just leave off the oregano if you don't like the flavor.
