Citrus and Sheep's Milk Cheese Butter

Scott Phillips

Yield: Makes about 1-1/2 cups

Bianco Sardo is a sheepy aged Sardinian cheese. Its tang pairs nicely with that of citrus, and since it’s not too salty, it won’t overpower fruit notes. If you can’t find it, use a high-quality pecorino.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. (8 Tbs.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 oz. Bianco Sardo or pecorino romano, finely grated with a rasp (about 2 cups)
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated lime zest
  • 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest
