Enjoy grilled cheese without the bread -- it's the best way to eat it in the summertime. And not just any cheese, but halloumi. Halloumi is a semi-hard cheese made from a mixture of sheep, goat and cow's milk that's popular in Cypriot cuisine. (Cypriot is a blend of Greek, Turkish, Italian and Middle Eastern foods.)
Halloumi has a high melting point so it can be fried or grilled and still keep its shape while getting a nice golden crust on the exterior and becoming tenderly soft inside. While that's a pretty great quality for a cheese to have, even better is its flavor. Halloumi is addictively salty and tastes great in light salads, mixed into skewers or in a crusty sandwich.
