Serves 4 (serving size: about 1/2 cup salad)

Sliced heirloom tomatoes are wow-worthy on their own--a simple vinaigrette and dollops of basil-flecked ricotta take them over the top. Serve with toasted baguette slices to sop up any tomato juices.

How to Make It

Combine oil, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and garlic in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine ricotta and 2 tablespoons minced basil in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Arrange tomato slices on a platter; sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 cup torn basil leaves. Drizzle oil mixture over salad. Dollop ricotta mixture evenly over tomato slices.
