Mizithra Cheese

Mizithra (Greek: Μυζήθρα) is a traditional, unpasteurized fresh cheese made with milk and whey from sheep and/or goats.

The cheese is soft, snow-white, creamy, and moist. Since no salt is added to Mizithra it has an almost sweet and milky taste.

In Cyprus, this type of cheese is known as anari.

Mizithra can be used both fresh and aged. This cheese can be served with honey and fruit as a dessert, or as a dish with olives, basil and tomatoes. Mizithra cheese is also a popular topping on salads and pastas.
