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
