What is Halloumi Cheese and where can I find some? Sounds good.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
It is a firm Greek cheese, usually make with goat and sheep milk. It's not crumbly, like Feta, but not soft, like chevre. I think it's traditionally grilled (without oil) in a skillet, and becomes kinda pliable, not so much stringy, like melted mozarella, but boingy and soft. It's pretty salty, so is good in combination with other things. I first had it in a sort of pilaf with couscous and dried apricots. If you've ever ordered saganaki at a Greek restaurant, that's halloumi.
You can find it at Greek or ethnic markets.

Actually, Saganaki is not made with Halloumi, it's traditionally made with Kasseri.
Halloumi is native to Cyprus, and is always served grilled. I can't imagine it in a panini with Prosciutto. Both of them are SO salty!
Halloumi can be found at any major grocery chain in the cheese section.
then you know something I don't, SKK. I've only found it in specialty cheese shops or in markets in Greek neighborhoods.
Here in Seattle Whole Foods and QFC carries it. Also have seen it at Costco at times.
Try Trader Joe's. You grill it and it remains firm. Serve hot and enjoy!!!!!! It is good with pepper jelly and fruit.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
Skip the store-bought sour mix.
