Ricotta Salata Cheese

The Facts

Country: Italy
Milk Pasteurized sheep
Age: 3 months+

Tasting Notes:

Ricotta Salata Cheese, from Sicily, is an Italian cheese made from the whey of sheep's milk, which is pressed, salted, and aged for at least 3 months. 

Unlike its younger counterpart Ricotta, Ricotta Salata has a crumbly texture, thanks to the pressing and ageing, which causes the cheese to lose moisture. The texture evolves into something closer to an aged feta.

Also unlike a young Ricotta, Ricotta Salata has a salty flavour, and a wide variety of uses.

Because of its texture, it can be cubed, sliced, grated, shaved, or simply crumbled. Use it in salads, atop soups, or anywhere you might use feta.
