Halloumi - 8 ounces
If you're new to halloumi, get ready for a treat. This semi-firm, brined cow's milk cheese has a high melting point, so it holds up beautifully to frying or grilling. The outside becomes golden and crispy, while the inside is salty and gooey. Made by Tonjes Farm Dairy in Callicoon, NY.
Pan-fried halloumi is fabulous as a substitute for mozzarella in a classic Caprese salad. Add it to a dish of lentils, a green salad or a curry, in place of paneer.
