Garlic Ricotta and Herb Spread
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 2 Tb. finely chopped fresh herbs - thyme, oregano, flat leaf parsley; a random proportion of each is fine or another mix of herbs would be welcome
- generous grating of fresh ground pepper
- a couple of pinches of salt - I like Maldon flaked salt + extra for sprinkling
- extra-virgin olive oil
Gently combine all ingredients except olive oil. Scoop ricotta mixture into individual-sized bowls or larger ones for a group. Pour olive oil over the scooped cheese. Sprinkle with a bit more flaked salt. Serve with crusty bread.
Soooo simple. And soooo good.
