Silano Ricotta Salata Toscanella is a classic cheese from Southern Italy, largely used in many Sicilian specialties such as Pasta alla Norma and Cannelloni.
Unlike soft ricotta, Ricotta Salata is firmer and can be grated. Our wheels of Ricotta Salata cheese are for a minimum of 30 days. The aging starts after coarse salt is added to heated sheep’s milk whey, which separates from the curd after the milk is heated for the first time. The salty, creamy flavor of Ricotta Salata makes it a great addition to almost any dish that needs a little boost in flavor.
