As some of you know, I attended Mimi Thorisson’s Workshop in Medoc, France this spring. It was 4 days filled with cooking and lots of eating. I have the 3 pounds to prove it. One night Mimi made this lovely ricotta dip with walnuts for dipping. Much to our delight we were dipping duck cracklings into this gorgeous whipped dip. Um, yes pretty outrageous right?! My first thought was this is delicious, and my second thought was there is no way my friends would consider dipping fat into fat as a starter. So I came up with this rendition, an Americanized, healthy version of the whipped ricotta dip. For those of you daring enough to dip duck cracklings into it, go for it!
Whipped Ricotta Dip
You will need:
– 1 cup whole milk ricotta
– 1/4 cup whipping cream
– 2 garlic cloves minced
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
*(1 cup finely chopped walnuts optional)
In a medium bowl, using a whisk whip all the ingredients until well-blended and whipped. Store in the fridge for at least 2 hours and serve with crudite.
It’s the perfect summer appetizer!
