*What is queso fresco?
Literally, "fresh cheese". Queso fresco is made from cow's milk, or sometimes a combination of cow and goat milk, and is lighter in taste and texture than other cheeses. This freshness makes it a perfect addition to summer vegetables and grilled meats, especially tacos. It crumbles easily and it a lovely, tangy addition to salads, too. If you can't find it, feta or goat cheese come pretty close and can stand in, in a pinch.
