Looks so simple and lovely -- nice combination idea. I could see throwing in a spritz of lime to perk it up, but to be fair I think that about everything.

You know, I'd been wondering about lime, too. Your note gave me the inspiration to whip up another batch and try it out. Liked it better! Changed the recipe to reflect that. Thanks!

Hi. It's a dry, salted ricotta. The texture is a little drier than a feta. It tastes sharp and tangy. I really like it.
