TABLE RICOTTA 4X7 LB (SALATA)
SKU as configured
Ricotta Salata originated in the arid, mountainous terrain of Sicily. Because it was almost impossible to keep cream-based ricotta fresh, the Sicilians created a clever way to press, salt and age the cheese in order to preserve it. Often referred to as one of Italy’s most misunderstood cheeses, Ricotta Salata is known for its dense, crumbly texture. The flavor is salty and nutty, yet maintains some of the milky sweetness that is the hallmark of its fresh, creamy cousin. Impeccable for grating, use Ricotta Salata on pizzas, tacos or salads.
