I bought halloumi a couple weeks ago, and it's been sitting in my fridge waiting to be included in a recipe worthy of halloumi.
'What the heck is halloumi?' you might be thinking...
Halloumi is a Greek semi-soft cheese made from goat's, sheep's, and sometimes cows milk. It taste kind of like mozzarella but is saltier. It also has a high melting point- which allows you to fry or GRILL IT! Who doesn't want warm, gooey cheese straight off the grill?!?
Well I had finally had enough waiting, and I saw Jamie Oliver paired halloumi and strawberries in a salad. Conveniently, I had strawberries so I decided to give it a go.
I wasn't sure what to expect, I had never had halloumi. But the mixture of salty halloumi, sweet strawberries, crisp cucumber, and sharp onion.... all I can say is WOW.
This is amazing. It's elegant, easy, impressive, and delicious.
