Ingredients
  

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 2 Tbsp Sigona’s Dark Chocolate Balsamic plus more for drizzling, if desired
  • 2 oranges or satsumas
  • 2 medium pink or ruby red grapefruit
  • A couple tablespoons crushed pistachios raw or roasted
  • 4 slices bread of choice such as a multigrain or marbled, toasted to desired toastiness

Instructions
 

  • Whip together the ricotta and balsamic until well combined. Set aside.
  • Slice off the peel from the citrus fruits using a knife so no peel or pith remains: Start by cutting off the peel from the top and the bottom, then slice the peel off the sides working from top to bottom around the fruit. Cut the fruit horizontally into slices about 1/4” thick.
  • Spread about 2 Tbsp of the whipped ricotta onto each slice of toast. Lay the citrus slices on top, overlapping in a pattern (about 4 to 5 slices each toast). Sprinkle the toasts with crushed pistachios and drizzle with additional dark chocolate balsamic, about 1 to 2 teaspoons each, if desired.
