creamy lemon basil dip

1 ¼ cup low-fat sour cream
¾ cup ricotta cheese
½ cup reduced fat mayo
1 lemon, juiced
¼ cup fresh chopped basil
1 medium garlic clove, minced


With all of the summer park outings I'm always looking for something fast + fresh to bring along. I made this dip for a picnic and we served it with veggies and my new favorite pretzels.

I substituted frozen basil cubes from Trader Joe's because I was in a rush and didn't have fresh basil at home (they are my favorite short-cut for fresh herbs). It was a tasty combination with the basil, lemon, and ricotta cheese.
