  • Brush the bread on both sides with oil and bake for about 10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Rub lightly with the garlic clove.

  • Preheat the broiler and position a rack 6 inches from the heat. Spread the ricotta in a shallow medium gratin dish in a 3/4-inch-thick layer. Drizzle with oil and broil for about 10 minutes, turning the dish occasionally, until the ricotta is bubbling and golden. Spoon the relish and olives on top. Serve with the garlic toasts.
