Today is all about ricotta cheese! Ricotta cheese is the perfect addition to many crowd-favorite appetizers from dips to finger foods. Let’s learn a little more about this creamy, spreadable cheese…
What is Ricotta Cheese?
Ricotta is an Italian whey cheese. It’s made from the leftover whey after cheese is produced. It has a creamy, white texture and a slightly sweet taste. It’s perfect for use in sweet and savory dishes.
I think ricotta cheese is quite underrated! It’s perfectly spreadable, creamy and delicious. It pairs well with so many flavors from sweet to savory. It’s also a wonderful base for so many fabulous party appetizers…
