1/2 baguette or other crusty bread

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

1/4 cup blanched hazelnuts

1 1/2 cups fresh ricotta

1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

Zest of 1 lemon

Honey, preferably wildflower, for drizzling


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the baguette into 1/3-inch slices. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Spread the hazelnuts on a separate baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes. Let the nuts cool, then chop.
  3. Mix the ricotta, parsley and lemon zest in a serving bowl and season with salt. Top with the hazelnuts and drizzle with honey. Serve with the toasts.
