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

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