...an unripe, semi hard white cheese with a texture between cottage cheese and mozzarella. Halloumi may well be eaten raw but it tastes best when cooked, fried or on charcoal. It is this distinctive characteristic that makes halloumi a unique cheese. In fact, it claims to be the only commercially known cheese that can be cooked in a number of different ways and retain its shape. Though halloumi cheese keeps its shape, its outward appearance turns into a crispy golden brown color taking on the grill marks while inwards it softens significantly but it does not melt.
The versatility of halloumi allows for its presence in a broad range of Cyprus dishes. It may be consumed fresh in salad or sandwich, grated over pasta, as a stuffing in ravioli and pastries or in the more Cypriot style as a side to chilled wedges of ripe watermelon making this an excellent appetizer especially during summer time!
