Ricotta-Basil Olive Oil Spread

1-1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/2 cup Basil Olive Oil

1 clove fresh garlic, smashed

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice OR Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar

1 teaspoon (or to taste) sea salt



Place the ingredients inside the bowl of a food processor or blender and process until creamy and smooth in consistency. Adjust seasoning and store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Great for use as a spread on some nice toasted bread. Equally delicious as a mayonnaise replacement, a dip for crudités or a spread fresh on grilled salmon.
