FFwD - Lyonnaise garlic and herb cheese

This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Lyonnaise garlic and herb cheese, a dip made with ricotta cheese, garlic, herbs, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper.

I made only a quarter of the recipe using garlic, fresh chives and dried tarragon.  I didn't have time to drain the ricotta, so I used it as is.  I also didn't chill it before serving, and it tasted fine - the ricotta was still cold from the fridge.

I served this dip with blue poppy and rye crackers.  It was pleasant enough, but didn't make me excited enough to make it again.
