6 recipes that use halloumi cheese in all its squeaky, salty glory
Halloumi is a firm, squeaky-textured cheese from Cyprus, usually made from a mix of goat’s and sheep’s milk. Like paneer, it doesn’t melt, which means you can cut it into cubes or slabs and grill, pan-sear or broil it for a vegetarian main. Unlike paneer, halloumi delivers a salty punch.
Pile halloumi onto salads, stuff it into a sandwich, or even crisp up cubes as a fun appetizer with a spicy dipping sauce. Grab a block and check out the recipes listed below. Not finding the right one for you? Search for “halloumi” in our Recipe Finder.
