Ricotta spread with herbs and lemon
I’ve been mad about ricotta for years — on toast drizzled with honey for breakfast, spread on sandwiches for lunch and there’s so many dinners and desserts that wouldn’t exist without it. I also serve ricotta with bread when we are having drinks. It’s one of the healthier snack options and you can use any herbs you have to hand — dill, mint, thyme, parsley, basil…
- Fold the lemon zest and herbs through the ricotta and season with freshly ground black pepper and plenty of flaky sea salt.
- Drizzle with oilive oil and serve with crusty bread.
