Herbed Grilled Halumi Cheese

Halumi cheese is a traditional Cypriot cheese that is made from a mixture of sheep and goat milk. It has an extremely high melting point so it is often served fried or grilled throughout the Middle East.

Serves 4


½ pound halumi cheese, sliced thick and about 2 inches in length
½ cup fresh oregano leaves
½ cup fresh parsley leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil


Brush the halumi cheese with some of the olive oil and grill each side on medium high heat for a few minutes or until well browned. Toss grilled halumi in a large mixing bowl with herbs, remaining olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt.
