Herbed Goat Cheese Spread

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.
