SUMMER: HALOUMI CHEESE

 HALOUMI is  salty cheese originating in Cyprus and made from sheep’s or goat’s milk: often grilled or fried because it melts very slowly. A rich source of calcium, haloumi also contains potassium and zinc, and is a great low-fat option.

Cypriots swear by eating fresh haloumi with wedges of watermelon for a delicious snack. Because it maintains its shape when cooked, haloumi can be baked, fried or grilled until the outside becomes crisp and golden and the inside melts slightly.
