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.
