Ricotta Salata Wedge
Ricotta Salata is an Italian cheese made from the whey part of sheep milk, which is pressed, salted and aged for at least 90 days. It is milky white in color with a firm texture and salty taste. The cheese is often used in salads and ideal for slicing, crumbling and grating.
Briati Ricotta Salata is great for slicing, crumbling, and grating, and it’s sure to be one of your newest favorite cheeses, especially with it’s affordable price tag. With the addition of salt (hence, “salata”), two months of age, and some pressing, ricotta loses moisture and becomes crumbly. Ricotta Salata maintains a unique freshness, perhaps that milky quality of ricotta, but changes in texture, becoming dry and spongy, almost like an aged feta. It’s sharper, too, from that extra dose of salt.
