Grilled Cheese Anyone?

image

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.

    1. That’s a great idea. I’m sure Mexican cheeses are a lot easier to find here in the West. To tell you the true, I don’t like anything that tastes like lamb and this cheese has that lamb taste to me. My man loved it and I ate it begrudgingly but didn’t love it. I’ll look for cow milk cheese!

      1. If so, I think you’ll like the Mexican version even better. And it is much easier to get in the US.

  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 🙂

  5. I’ve never actually Halloumi cheese before, but this salad looks delicious – it’d definitely be a great way to try it for the first time I’m sure!

    Thanks for sharing it with us at Fiesta Friday!

    1. Michelle,
      It’s kind of hard to find. Trader Joes carries it off and on. I’m going to look for the Mexican cheese that Ronit recommended.

  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!
