    Pistachio and Date Ricotta Crostini

    2 reviews

    My husband and I regularly have date night at home where we make a four-course meal. For appetizers, I like to keep things simple but dressed up. I’ve found that making a special appetizer helps transform the atmosphere into a fancy meal. We’ve grown to really cherish these long and luxurious evenings together in our living room. Fresh figs can be used in lieu of dates if that's what you have on hand! —Kristin Bowers, Gilbert, Arizona
