December’s ‘topping of the month’ is deliciously cheesy
Say cheese! The restaurant known for its simple, fresh and honest ingredients – Salata – is introducing Ricotta Salata to this month’s menu.
Ricotta Salata is an Italian cheese made from the whey part of cow’s milk. Ricotta means re-cooked and Salata means salted. It’s pressed, salted and aged for 30 days, giving it a pleasant milky flavor with a hint of salt.
At Salata, guests are able to customize their own salad to fit the mood they are in that day. But Ricotta Salata fans are encouraged to come by soon. This special topping will only be available through Dec. 31.
