When you want something fresh and light, try this dip. If your summer herbs are popping up, snip a few of them to mix in with the ricotta. This dip is delicious on toasted baguette slices or with fresh veggies.
Creamy herb dip
1 container ricotta (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (try a combination of flat-leaf parsley, basil and chives, though you can also use tarragon, cilantro or any other combination)
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Black pepper, to taste
In a bowl, combine ingredients until smooth. Serve dip with slices of toasted baguette drizzled with olive oil.
