halloumi is the cheese of cyprus, my birthplace. rebecca's natural food store recently had a sale on halloumi, so i stocked up. this cheese is usually grilled or gently fried. it is a favorite around here. this morning we had fried halloumi accompanied by cucumbers and tomatoes marinated in vinegar, olive oil and fresh basil grown on our deck. we also had multi grain toast with fresh raspberry jam from the farmer's market. and coffee and orange juice too. what a nice weekday morning.
