Halloumi is a white, chewy, salty cheese originally from Cyprus. It can be made from goat, sheep, or cow’s milk, but these days it is usually made from cow’s milk. I think my favorite thing about halloumi is that it makes a funny sweeky noise when you chew it! What’s also neat is that you can grill it. It has a very high melting point so you can cut it into cubes or slices and grill it over a hot pan or grill. It will give a nice crunchy exterior and creamy interior. It’s kind of like eating a hot mozzarella stick without the breading : )
I recommend this salad to serve as a base for your grilled halloumi, along with a glass of refreshing white wine.
