1 tsp honey
pinch of salt
1 French bread or ciabatta baguette, cut into 1/2 inch slices
pinch of salt
2 basil leaves, sliced into ribbons

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
First make the whipped ricotta by combining all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth and has a “whipped” texture. You can also make it in a food processor. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Place the sliced bread on a large baking sheet. Brush each side of each piece with a little olive oil. Sprinkle the top with salt. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Top each crostini with a spoonful of whipped ricotta followed by 2-3 slices of strawberries. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and top with basil ribbons. Serve and enjoy!
