A fresh and vibrant salad of soft organic new potatoes tossed with seasonal French beans, tender ribbons of courgette, fresh basil and zingy lemon, topped with dollops of creamy, herbed ricotta, made from the cows that graze all day on organic pasture.

Trim the French beans. When the potatoes are nearly done, add the French beans to the water. Simmer for a further 2 mins, then drain well and transfer to a large.
Add half the ricotta to a small bowl. Pick half of the basil leaves. Roughly shred them and add to the cheese. Grate in the lemon zest and sprinkle in a little salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Peel and grate the garlic into a separate bowl. Squeeze in the lemon juice. Whisk in 2tbsp oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and beans. Toss together well.
