Ingredients for Ricotta Dip and Roasted Grapes
For the Ricotta Dip you will need:
- Ricotta Cheese: Full fat gives the best dip consistency as well as taste.

Serve the dip with toasted baguette slices. I like to cut mine at 1/2 inch slices.
How To Make Ricotta Dip with Roasted Grapes
This recipe has three main steps. But don’t worry, they are super quick and easy to do.
- Roasting the Grapes: Combine your ingredients together in a baking dish, pop in the oven, take out once they burst and are roasted.
- Blending the Ricotta Dip: Throw your ingredients in a food processor or blender, pulse until smooth and well combined.
- Serving: Spoon the dip onto a serving dish and top with roasted grapes, olive oil, and thyme. Put your toasted baguette slices on the slide.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
The alternative is to whisk it, and a lot. Your dip will not be as smooth as what is pictured but still delicious. You will also want to make sure your thyme and garlic is super finely minced since you will not have the food processor or blender to break it down even smaller.
Not at all, although I highly recommend it. You can also use ciabatta bread, pita bread, naan flatbread, sourdough, crackers, chips, and even vegetables.

5 thoughts on “Ricotta Dip with Roasted Grapes”
I had this recipe from about five years ago, but I don’t remember where I got it from. The first time I served it, people raved about it, even people that were not familiar with Ricotta cheese. Delicious. As a kid, being Italian, my father used Ricotta cheese to make “fritatas” on Easter Sunday. He was a master at it, and we loved it. I use Ricotta cheese any time I can. It is truly underrated.
I made the roasted grapes and they are so delicious! I could not stop eating them! Perfect for brunch, party or really anytime. Will definitely make this again!
Wow this is so good! Light and creamy with just the right amount of flavor. I made a double batch among a few other apps and this was the first thing gone. I also loved that i could make it all earlier in the day. Thank you!
