Abstract : In this paper, we firstly define the Ricci mean value along the gradient vector field of the Ricci potential function and show that it is non-negative on a compact Ricci soliton. Furthermore a Ricci soliton is Einstein if and only if its Ricci mean value is vanishing. Finally, we obtain a compact Ricci soliton $(M^{n},g) (n \geq 3)$ is Einstein if its Weyl curvature tensor and the Kulkarni-Nomizu product of Ricci curvature are orthogonal.
