Xigalo of Sitia

Xigalo of Sitia is a dairy product, produced from the natural acidification of goat and sheep milk. White in color, it is a spread with a somewhat grainy in texture with an acidy, slightly salty taste and a distinctively pleasant aroma.

It is a wonderful traditional cheese that was recognized with a Protected Designation of Origin in 2011.

It is served plain as an appetizer, but is also an excellent accompaniment to a number of other dishes, such as dolmadakia, gemista, french fries, and dakos. It is ideal for spreading on bread or for use in salads.
