This dip is so easy to change up. Swap any of the cheeses for cream cheese, cottage cheese, or queso blanco. Easily swap the basil for oregano, rosemary, or even parsley. And feel free to swap out the cherry tomatoes for grape tomatoes or chopped tomatoes.

How to Store and Reheat
Store leftover goat cheese dip tightly wrapped in aluminum foil in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a 350°F oven for 20-30 minutes, or until warmed through and bubbly.
I do not recommend freezing this dip, as the creamy cheeses will turn grainy once thawed.
Serve this tasty baked goat cheese dip with toasted bread, crackers, crostini, or crudité for dipping.

Notes from the Test Kitchen
Note that the roasted tomatoes are prone to pop when biting into them, releasing hot tomato juice… sounds delicious, but also possibly dangerous. So if the tomatoes haven’t split open and deflated themselves, try to poke them and get them to pop open before serving.
“OMG a girl after my own heart <3 I am in love with this dip! I have to go to the store and buy more ingredients to make this – again – as I ate the first batch all by myself. I absolutely love goat cheese and this recipe is DA BOMB! Thank you (I think) for my new addition = )” -Joyce K.
How to Make Goat Cheese Dip Step by Step
Make the Dip: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 6-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 cup of low-fat ricotta cheese, 8 ounces (1 log) of goat cheese, ¾ cup of crumbled feta cheese, 1 clove of minced garlic, ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and ¼ cup of chopped fresh basil. Use a spoon to combine as much as possible, although it doesn’t need to be perfect. When combined as much as you can by hand, stir in ⅛ pound of each of the yellow and red cherry tomatoes.
Top with Tomatoes: Pour the mixture into the baking dish and top with the remaining ⅛ pound of each of yellow and red cherry tomatoes.
Bake the Dip: Bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and slightly browned. Serve with toasted bread or crackers.
