Is it an open faced sandwich or a tartine recipe? It’s DELICIOUS! Just 25 min to make this asparagus tartine. It’s slightly fancy without the fuss.


  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice (fresh)
  • 4 thick slices bread (sourdough or artisan)
  • olive oil
  • 16 oz. asparagus
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 4 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • flaky sea salt
  • fresh dill for garnish 


  1. Make lemon ricotta cheese. Stir together ricotta and lemon zest. 
  2. Grill bread. Heat grill over medium high heat and brush both sides of bread generously with olive oil. Grill for 3-5 minutes per side, until lightly charred and toasted. 
  3. Trim asparagus by breaking off the woody bottom with your hands. Slice into 1 inch pieces. 
  4. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes. Take off of heat and stir in fresh dill and lemon juice. 
  5. Layer bread with lemon ricotta, asparagus, and prosciutto. Top with freshly cracked pepper, flaky sea salt, and chopped dill.
