Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10
  • 1 large heirloom tomato, large dice
  • ¼ cup shredded basil
  • ½ cup white beans
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup crumbled Ricotta Salata
  • Toasted ciabatta bread
  1. Mix together the ingredients from garlic clove to pepper in a small bowl. Let this mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the garlic to "cook" a bit and the flavors soften a bit and won't be as pungent.
  2. Toss together the tomatoes, basil, white beans, olive oil, ricotta salata and garlic mixture together. Taste and adjust for seasonings.
  3. Serve on top of toasted ciabatta. Drizzle on extra olive oil, more basil or cheese for serving!
