I want to make a recipe calling for ricotta salata but can't find any. What's a good substitute?

Feta would work, but it's saltier, I believe. What else is in the recipe?

How about mixing some feta with regular ricotta, then you'd get the salinity and creaminess.

Not sure if this is where I can reply. Thanks for the responses! In answer to WinnieAb, corn and mint are also in the recipe. I think combining the feta with the ricotta will work great here. Thanks both of you!!

Thanks Lynda! I would check out Woodlands (great store!) but we're in Tahoe where the ingredients are a little more limited at the local stores.
