It’s grilling season, y’all! Woo hoo!
I’m so pumped to finally be firing up the grill. Our Spring weather has been less than ideal lately. We’ve been plagued with a seemingly never ending string of cold, rainy days. And frankly, it’s been a little depressing.
But it looks like things are finally starting to turn around. Which means I’m heading outside and putting anything and everything on the grill.
I feel like I really stepped up my grilling game last year, as I tried to go beyond the usual run-of-the-mill staples like hamburgers and chicken. I grilled salsa, lobster pizza and heck, I even grilled watermelon. I was pretty unstoppable. This year, I’m hoping to push the boundaries even a little bit further.
So when I picked up some beautifully crisp snap peas this past week, I knew I wanted to try grilling them.
Naturally, I used my grilled snap peas for toast (although as I’m writing this now I can’t help but think they would be a great addition to a salad as well). The slightly charred snap peas, combined with a little honey-sweetened whipped ricotta cheese and a sprinkle of za’atar seasoning, make for a wonderfully flavorful savory-sweet snack or light lunch. I’m obsessed. And the presentation is pretty cute too, which I always appreciate.
If you try out my Grilled Snap Pea and Whipped Ricotta Toast, snap a picture, post it to social media and tag me so I can see it! Because I like to be nosey!
Oh and my friend Sarah just posted a recipe for snap peas with za’atar seasoning. So go check that out too, if you’re digging the flavor combo.
