- 2 slices of your fave fresh bread, lightly toasted
- 2 heaping TBSP ricotta cheese
- 2 oz canned sardines, preferably marinated in extra virgin olive oil with cracked black pepper If not already marinated in cracked black pepper, you can add it yourself
- Juice of half a lemon
- Squash Blossoms
- Sugar snap peas
- Thinly sliced radishes
Spread 1 TBSP of ricotta on each slice of toasty bread (more if desired, go nuts).
Evenly disperse the fillets of sardines between the toasts, laying them over the ricotta.
If your sardines weren't already marinating in a cracked black pepper marinade, crack a generous amount of black pepper over the toasts.
Garnish with optional seasonal garnishes, like squash blossoms, sugar snap peas, and/or microgreens.
Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the toasts.
