Big salad with Halloumi cheese

Have you guys tried Halloumi cheese yet?! OMG…’s the best thing I have ever tasted! ūüėČ Ok, maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration but this stuff is the bomb. I stared seeing it on Instagram about a year ago and I just had to try it. Wikipedia defines halloumi cheese a¬†semi-hard, unripened brined¬†cheese¬†made from a mixture of¬†goat’s and¬†sheep’s milk, and sometimes also cow’s milk.¬†It has a high melting point and so can easily be¬†fried¬†or¬†grilled. Halloumi is set with¬†rennet¬†and is unusual in that no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation.¬†You fry it an a pan with some olive oil and then squeeze fresh lemon juice on it and you can add to any meal, salad or sandwich. It tastes like heaven to me……… ūüôā I was in dire need of some raw veggies when I came up with the salad combo. Feel free to use whatever produce you have on hand.
