Ricotta Salata from the Pecorino family maintains a unique freshness. It’s more of an aged version of regular Ricotta, and as the name implies, it’s salty – “salata.” While Ricotta is almost sweet, Ricotta Salata is salty, and where ricotta is soft and liquidy, Salata is dry and firm, buttery but crumbly. It can easily be shaved or grated, making Ricotta Salata a great option for pasta, risotto, salads, a sandwich, in a scramble, or on a burger.

  1. Atop a salad of arugula with beets and apples, finished with a squeeze from an orange slice and your best olive oil.
  2. Added to blood orange segments, fennel, pear, hazelnuts, and parsley leaves
  3. As the finisher for a saute of lemony kale

    This really surprised me. I’m a bit of a finicky eater and I could not stop eating this cheese. I bought it to marinate like Nona did. Here’s what I did: chop up and throw in a jar. Cover with olive oil, 6 cloves of garlic, 3 sage leaves (I used dried powder) and 10 black olives. Put in the fridge for 2-3 days and eat with bread or just throw it over salad. Amazing!!
