Grilled Nectarine and Prosciutto Crostini

  1. Preheat grill to low heat. Leave grill hood down while preheating, but for all grilled items, grill with hood up so as to avoid burning food.
  2. In a medium bowl, add ricotta, lemon zest, honey, salt, and pepper. Using an electric hand mixer with whisk attachment, whip ricotta until smooth & creamy. Set aside
  3. Drizzle each baguette slice with olive oil, then salt and pepper to taste. Grill bread slices for 2 minutes each side, or until toasted and slightly charred, but not too dark or crunchy. Remove and set aside.
  4. Fold each torn piece of prosciutto into a loose pile. Grill prosciutto for 1.5-2 minutes each side, or until desired crispness. Be sure to consider that, as the prosciutto cools, it’ll crisp up further. Remove and let cool.
  5. Brush each nectarine half on its cut side with olive oil. Grill cut side-down for 4-5 minutes, or until char marks form. Remove and let cool. Slice each nectarine half into 4 equal slices. Set aside.
  6. To build each crostino: Slather bread slice with ricotta, then top with 1 crisped prosciutto, 1 nectarine slice, a drizzle of balsamic glaze, then a sprinkle of mint. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Enjoy!
