Here's another option for those chives and, as the season progresses, other herbs. This is great on crackers, bread, or veggies, or, come summertime, try it as a pizza topping with sliced fresh tomatoes on top. There are lots of great local goat cheese options.
8 ounces ricotta cheese
3 ounces goat cheese
1/2 cup chopped chives or other herbs
½ tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Mash the ricotta and goat cheese together in a small bowl until they are well combined.
Add the chives, salt, and pepper and mix well.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
Makes about 2 cups.
