Oh what a delight!  I have adored halloumi cheese ever since my family would frequent Zorba’s, a fabulous Greek restaurant in Baton Rouge.  They would bring the cheese out in a heat proof dish, light it on fire in front of you, and put out the flames with lemon juice.  Halloumi is a cheese made from a mixture of sheep’s and goat’s milk, it is semi-hard in texture and because of its high melting point can be (like I said) grilled or heated with minimal melting.  It has a wonderfully salty flavor and when cooked, gets a lovely brown texture on the outside.

I was thrilled to make this recipe that highlights cubes of halloumi cheese as a substitute for croutons on a hearty winter salad.  The cubes of cooked cheese add a lovely texture and salty taste to the salad that believe me, you will  adore.  A hearty salad that could be a main course all on its own, it truly was a memorable addition to our dinner menu last night. Opa!
