Serves 4-6 as a starter
One 16 oz jar hot & sweet cherry peppers
4 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
3 tbsp ricotta cheese, at room temperature
2 tbsp basil, chopped
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tsp mint, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt & pepper to taste
Mix the cheeses, herbs, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Rinse the cherry peppers, removing any seeds if needed. Set upside down on a paper towel to drain.
