There are several local brands of fresh ricotta available. You want a soft, white, almost fluffy cheese. It’s surprisingly good with nothing but a drizzle of olive oil, coarse salt, and mint, but you can also add capers or chopped olives.

1 pound fresh ricotta
1 tablespoon good-quality olive oil
Coarse salt, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 French baguette, cut on the diagonal into thin slices

1. Spoon the ricotta into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil and very sparingly with salt. Cover the top with mint.

2. Serve with French bread.
