~ Blue Cheese-Ricotta Dip ~

This is a fun, easy and tasty appetizer to serve this time of year. Add the wine and you're set!  ;-)

~ Blue Cheese-Ricotta Dip ~

1 15-ounce container ricotta cheese  
8 ounces blue cheese,  crumbled (2 cups) 
2 T. apple cider (can use milk)
Freshly ground black pepper 
Snipped fresh chives or your favorite herb 

Green and/or red apple slices 
Breadsticks, crackers, pita chips ~ your choice!  

Allow ricotta and blue cheese to stand at room temperature for 1 hour. In a medium bowl stir together the cheeses, mashing with a fork until well combined. Stir in the apple cider. Add pepper to taste. Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with chives or garnish as desired.  You can form the mixture into the desired shape that you prefer. It's fun to try for a pumpkin this time of year!  I use a cake pan that I bought when I was working at Williams-Sonoma for awhile. You can also clean out a small pumpkin or gourd and use it as the serving dish...lots of choices!

I've shared this in the past but figured it was ok as a Fall rerun.

  5. Hi Pat,
    I just love your presentation for the delicious Dip. I hope you didn't get any wind damage from the storm. We only had a few small limbs in the yard, we were very lucky. Hope you are enjoying this lovely cool weather. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for sharing this awesome post with Full Plate Thursday.
