An ode to halloumi

Oh halloumi!
You delicious, salty cheese
I could eat you all day with such ease
In a salad with cous cous
Or on pita with herbs
Just make sure it's an extra large serve!

Oh yes, I am currently in love with halloumi. How could you not enjoy something that is this high in fat and salt, and has such a wonderful texture when grilled? (I have some very bad habits!). Thankfully I live right next door to one of the largest Greek neighbourhoods in Melbourne, so the lady at the deli put me onto the right stuff and apparently Cypriot halloumi is totally where it's at.

Unfortunately I ate all of the halloumi before I took any photos...
