Turkish White Cheese

Turkish white cheese, also known as beyaz peynir, is a brined curd cheese made from sheep's or cow's milk that is common in Turkish cuisine. It has a bright white color, moist and crumbly texture similar to feta but smoother, and a salty, sour and tangy flavor. It is often used in salads, meze spreads, stuffed vegetables, Turkish breakfast platters, and desserts.
