If you haven’t had whipped ricotta yet, I am very happy to introduce you to this amazingly delicious and easy appetizer! Seriously, all you have to do is throw a couple things (ahem, ricotta and olive oil) in a food processor, put it in a serving bowl, and top it with some other things–easy cheesy! The best part is that this ricotta dip is highly versatile: you can keep it simple with homemade (or store bought) crostini, add it to your breakfast toast, or serve it on a cheese board with other cheeses, meats, and some fresh produce. The possibilities are endless!
