This spread is horrible. The taste and texture of the herbs in the cheese is overwhelming. I didn't snip as the recipe stated, I chopped finely and the cheese tasted like I was eating a bush of basil, chives, and oregano.

The spread has no flavor other than herbs. I added 4 more ounces of ricotta that I had on hand, garlic, and lemon juice, a ton of salt and pepper to try to give this some taste other than the overpowering herbs.

There was nothing to save this spread. It was left largely uneaten by my guests.

Save your money, pass on this spread.
