  • Prep Time
  • 8Servings


  • 1 loaf (about 12oz) ciabatta, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/2 cup EVOO
  • 2 granny smith apples, cored and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 8 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, juiced plus half the peel, sliced into thin strips
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cups fresh ricotta
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves


Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium- high heat. Brush the ciabatta slices on both sides with 1/4 cup EVOO. Grill, turning once, until golden-brown and grill marks appear, 6 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss together the apples, radishes, lemon juice, lemon peel and 2 tbsp. EVOO. Season with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, combine the ricotta with the remaining 2 tbsp. EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Spread the ricotta mixture on the grilled bread, top with the apple-radish mixture and garnish with the parsley.
