While summer has us chomping at the bit for a perfectly constructed BLT, we prefer to put our tomatoes center stage. Tomato season is so fleeting that our favorite way to enjoy the fruit is with some good olive oil and flaky salt. Granted, sometimes that can get a little redundant, so this recipe adds a creamy ricotta spread and fresh tender herbs to complement the sweet tomato flavor without overwhelming it. We recommend serving this on a big platter. If you’re feeding a number of hungry mouths you might even want to double the recipe, it’s that good.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine ricotta, cream, oil, and ½ teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

Step 2

Spread ricotta cream in a thin layer on a serving platter and top with tomatoes. Season tomatoes with flaky salt and several grinds of pepper. Drizzle with oil and top with herbs.
