Creamy Ricotta Dip

Anything creamy goes awesome while preparing sandwiches with bread slices, i love creamy dips r sauces for my salads too...Do you know ricotta cheese has a low carbohydrate count?? they r typically less then 3g carb per ounce...cheese are important source of nutrition liks calcium n vitamin A also rich in minerals n protein..regular cheeses r highly fat in calories , if u want to lose weight n stay healthy choose lower caloric cheese like ricotta..coming to this creamy dip, i saw Curryleaf 's Crema di Ricotta few days back, really the cream looked so fabulous, i wish to prepare them as soon as possible, but she prepared it as sweet version..i went for the spicy version for this cream, finally i finished it almost similar to curryleaf's cream...


1/2cup Ricotta cheese (low fat)
1tsp Dijon Mustard
1/4tsp Pepper powder
1/4tsp Dry basil powder
3tbsp Cream cheese (low fat)
Salt (if needed)

Whisk everything together to get a creamy dip..can serve them chilled r at room temperature...its such a delicious dip, they goes awesome as dip for french friesn fresh salads, sauce for preparing sandwiches, just as spread for breads..
