Herbed Ricotta Spread

I'm usually not a fan of cheese but when it comes to ricotta all bets are off! Ricotta is great to spread on a sandwich instead of mayo, tastes delicious stuff inside of pasta shells, and for this dish mixed with a herbs and spread over crostini.

Herbed Ricotta Spread
  • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup fresh chopped herbs (dill, parsley, chives, mint or a combination of any of these)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Spread over crostini/crackers or serve as a dip for vegetables. Enjoy!

This sounds great! And you know my awesome sweet ricotta cheese spread... honey & cinnamon whipped with a blender or hand-held mixer. So delicious as a dip for fruit or cinnamon pita chips!
