Bruschetta e insalata di ricotta (makes four pieces)

  • 4 slices baguette parisienne
  • 1 cucumber
  • ½ red onion
  • Cress
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp vinegar; 1 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp ricotta
  • The grated rind and juice of half a lemon
  • 1–2 pinches hibiscus flower salt
  • 4–5 slices Parma ham
  • Fresh basil leaves
  1. Fry the baguette slices in olive oil until crisp.
  2. Cut the cucumber into spaghetti-style strips using a julienne peeler and place in a bowl. Finely chop the onion and add to the cucumber with the cress. Mix all three ingredients together, season to taste and add a dash of vinegar and oil before setting aside.
  3. Mix the ricotta with the lemon rind and lemon juice and add the hibiscus flower salt and a pinch of pepper.
  4. Spread the ricotta-lemon mixture over the baguette slices. Top with the cucumber spaghetti and Parma ham and garnish with a basil leave.


Of course, those not brave enough to have a go at making the recipe themselves can always try the dish in the Camino restaurant. Just ask our service team for the bruschetta – you simply have to try it!
