Not for me. Haloumi is tooo salty for me, and I only like capsicum raw. It does look lovely though.

Mary Kirkland said...

Cucumber salad. Now that sounds interesting.

This sounds and looks wonderful. I've had fried goat cheese, so this might be something I would look for when I go shopping.

That sounds like it could be spicy.

I loved the Halloumi I fried in Kerry Gold butter but found it way too salty. I bought another block of it but haven't had the nerve to try frying it again, maybe in some coconut oil or avocado oil this time.

Sandi said...

That looks so good!

Kezzie said...

I LOVE Halloumi! This looks tasty!
