2 cups ricotta cheese @Galati Cheese
½ cup roughly torn fresh basil
½ teaspoon salt
Juice and zest of one lemon
Arbequina Olive Oil for garnish @dressedbyanolive
Additional basil for garnish
Grilled bread for serving


Add the ricotta, basil, salt, lemon juice and lemon zest to a food processor.

Blend until smooth and creamy to your liking.

About one minute should do it.

For an even airier dip, you could go up to two minutes.

Check periodically to see when it transforms into your desired consistency.

Alternatively, you can whip the ricotta using a hand mixer or whisk until it’s light, smooth and creamy.

Spoon into a bowl for serving.

If desired, garnish it a drizzle of olive oil and additional herbs.

Serve with grilled bread, sweet blistered cherry tomatoes, or your favourite dipper.
