Grilled Cheese Anyone?

Halloumi cheese is a firm sheep cheese that has a tangy, salty taste like feta with a sheepy flavor. It holds its shape while grilling and even browns well. Trader Joes carries it sometimes and it’s worth seeking out.

I grilled the cheese slices until browned and served them over micro greens and kale with black berries and ripe peaches. I topped the salad with balsamic glaze for a delicious vegetarian main meal salad. If you eat bread then I think a big chunk of crusty bread with a drizzled of olive oil would make this salad sing. A crisp French Sauvignon Blanc or a California Fume Blanc would pair well. I served my salad with Pellegrino with a lime wedge.
I’m taking my salad to Fiesta Friday. Stop by the virtual party for great recipe ideas to try this weekend. You can find more recipes http://www.FiestaFriday.net

Savor every bite.

  1. Lovely salad!
    I love Halloumi cheese, but it’s not always easy to get. I’ve found a more accessible and pretty good substitute with the Mexican “Queso de Frier”. It is a bit less salty, which I actually like, and the texture is almost similar.

  2. What a great looking recipe Tracey! Not sure I have tried Halloumi cheese but there is a Trader Joe’s nearby. I like the idea you can grill it and the way you served it with the fresh fruit and balsamic glaze. Thanks so much for bringing this to Fiesta Friday 🙂

  6. What a beautiful dish! I love all of the flavors of the fruit and grilled cheese with the balsamic glaze. It would be like an anti-pasta platter in one bite!
