Instructions

1

Prep veggies

Place oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 425°F. Meanwhile:
*Rinse cherry tomatoes and slice in half. Toss with a couple pinches of salt.
*Rinse spring onions, trim off green tops and root ends and thinly slice lengthwise.
*Pick leaves off basil. Rinse and mince.
*Zest lemon. Combine lemon zest with ricotta and a large pinch of salt and pepper.

Assemble, cook tarts

Place squares of puff pastry on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, if you have it. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of seasoned ricotta into each square and spread evenly, leaving only ¼-inch of the edge exposed. Evenly divide cherry tomatoes and spring onions between each square. Scatter pine nuts and half of the basil over each square and top with a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Place baking sheet on the upper third rack of oven and bake — rotating pan once halfway through — until edges of pastry dough puff up and turn golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes.

Toss salad, plate

Toss arugula with juice of ½ the lemon, 2 teaspoons olive oil and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

Plate, garnish
