Basil Cheese Dip

BasilCheeseSpreadRight on schedule, basil is booming in the garden and I’ve got a field of it! There are so many awesome dishes to put basil in! Here is one of the easiest, and yummiest recipes ever to WOW a crowd on a hot summer day!

15 oz softened goat cheese

15 oz ricotta cheese

1 lemon

1 giant bunch of fresh basil (about 5 big branches with lots of leafs—it shrinks up fast!)

  • Mix the cheeses together in a big glass bowl
  • Chop up the basil and combine with the cheese mixture
  • Take the lemon, hold it over the bowl and zest it into the mixture—what does that mean? You are going to shave the bright yellow skin off of the lemon with a zester tool!
  • Mix thoroughly
  • Scoop the mixture up onto a spatula and place in the center of a big serving platter in one big dollop.
  • Surround the cheese with crackers


  • I like to take a loaf of French bread or a baguette, slice it super thin, spread some garlic butter on each slice and toast in a 450 degree oven for 5 minutes and serve with garlic toasted bread

About PR

I’m an “Oily Yogi” ready to inspire you to reach for limitless possibilities.

With a lifetime of experience in the outdoors, one of my biggest joys is to share my passion for adventure with others. After spending decades in suits and buildings, I found a way to combine the office and the outdoors in a way that optimizes positive results. There is a clearly defined correlation between nature, sensory contact, and high impact performance.

I am recognized as a change agent, who inspires people to allow their dreams to become reality through group and individual experiential settings. But perhaps the best gift I can bring to the table is my passion for your wellbeing. I enjoy coaching and training others to achieve their personal and professional goals, focusing on health, wellness wholeness, and limitless possibilities. Everything starts with the self; and is unique to each person. Simply tuning into the breath, mindfulness, and gentle movement for starters. Whenever I can, we take the work outside.

Life is an adventure! Whether it’s a business or personal situation, career path or life path, As Chief Experience Officer of PR Brady AdVentures, my passion is Inspiring Limitless Possibilities, Bringing Our Best Selves to Life.
So, shall we begin?
