Ricotta Crostini

Ricotta Cheese In A Bowl

The mildly tangy nature of the cheese blended with herbs and the fresh creamy taste of Olio Nuovo Olive Oil creates an amazing appetizer.


Blend the Ricotta Cheese with the Basil and ground pepper. Add in the More Than Olives Olio Nuovo Olive Oil and stir until well blended. 

If serving the spread in a bowl, use a shallow serving bowl. Drizzle the spread with More Than Olives Olio Nuovo Olive Oil. Lightly dust with fresh ground pepper and flake salt or Sea Salt. You can add a sprig of Basil to decorate the appetizer. Serve with toasted baguette slices.  

If you want to serve as a ready-to-eat appetizer, spread each toasted baguette slice with the cheese mixture. Drizzle each slice with More Than Olives Olio Nuovo Olive Oil, ground pepper, and flake salt or Sea Salt. Place them on a platter and serve immediately. 

Olio Nuovo is a Seasonal Olive Oil, only available right after harvest in November & December. During the rest of the year, this appetizer can be made with a medium-intensity Extra Virgin Olive Oil such as Arbequina or Picual. More Than Olives will have a perfect substitute for you to use.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols

“Delicious and aromatic California olive oils and highly flavorful balsamic vinegar varieties! The employees are always friendly and helpful. I really appreciate that I can refill bottles too.”
