Looking for a meat-free option for your Memorial Day barbecue or the summertime grilling season? Tofu and mushrooms are old standbys, but here's another idea: mellow, tangy, perfectly-textured halloumi cheese.
Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese traditionally made from a blend of goat and sheep milk (modern versions may include cow's milk). What makes it ideal for grilling or frying is the fact that it doesn't melt. Throwing it on the barbecue gives it a golden crust and warm, soft center that's pleasantly salty and tangy.
Here are some recipes we're eager to try this season:
