A variation of Ricotta, this pure white, firm, rindless cheese originated in the hot, dry island climate of Sicily. It is made from lightly salted sheep's milk curd that is pressed and dried, then aged for a minimum of three months. Ricotta Salata has a supple, mild taste. It's not at all "sheepy" or salty, but rather has a nutty, sweet milky flavor. Extremely versatile, Ricotta Salata can be used in salads and pasta dishes and is ideal for grating.
