Savory Three-Cheese Sandwich Spread
Serve this tasty, three-cheese sandwich spread on bread, or with crackers and vegetable crudités for a terrific appetizer spread.
2/3 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon milk
- In a bowl mix all of the ingredients except the milk. Gradually mix in enough milk to make the mixture spreadable. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Makes about 2 1/4 cups.
Variation: Other varieties of shredded cheese can be used with the ricotta.
- Halve crusty French rolls horizontally. Pull out the centers of the rolls to make shells about 1/2-inch thick. (Reserve the crumbs for another use.) Fill the roll halves with sandwich spread and press together; package individually in plastic wrap.
- For a picnic, pack the sandwich spread in a paper cup or plastic container. Cover securely. Serve with crackers or vegetable sticks.
- Make hearty main-dish sandwiches with whole-grain bread, sandwich spread, sliced tomatoes, and lettuce.
