Raspberry and Red Currant Salad with Whipped Ricotta, Lemon Curd, and Ginger Crumbs

2Nourish_01_292_cmyk

This easy-prep dessert is a marriage 
of Italian (ricotta) and English (lemon curd). It’s ideal when raspberries and red currants are bursting with sweetness. You 
can either make your own ginger cookies or buy your favorite brand 
to crumble over the top.
