Port Salut is a creamy, mellow semi-soft cow’s milk cheese with a bright orange rind and a mild, sweet flavor. Originally created by Trappist monks in Western France during the French Revolution, the cheese was a means of survival. When they returned to France, they continued to make their new style of cheese. Unlike many other French cheeses, Port Salut is rather mild and sweet in flavor. Its light yellow paste is smooth and velvety with a touch of tanginess. Port Salut may be served at room temperature as a table cheese, but it also melts well for cooking.
