  • 1 ciabatta baguette, cut into ½” thick slices
  • 3 tablespoons Private Selection™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for brushing crostini
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bunch kale, tough stems removed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth or water
  • 1 package Private Selection™ Old World Prosciutto


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • To make crostini, place ciabatta slices on a baking sheet; bake until lightly toasted, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool. Then brush each slice with olive oil.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the ricotta and lemon zest until well combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
