Celery and Tuma Cheese Salad

Insalata di Sedano e Tuma

SERVES 4

From the Piedmont region in the northwest corner of Italy comes this simple yet delicious celery salad mixed with hazelnuts for which this region is known and tuma d'Trausela cheese, a fresh curd made from raw cow's milk and produced in the Chiusella Valley near Turin. The texture is very soft and tender and the taste is sweet. Substitute a fresh mozzarella or a salted ricotta cheese, which is also delicious.

1/2 pound tuma, fresh mozzarella, or ricotta salata cheese, cubed

1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts

2 tablespoons Filippo Berio extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste
