Halloumi is a semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of cow, sheep, and goat's milk.  Halloumi has a high melting point, so it can easily be fried or grilled.  The texture is similar to mozzarella or thick feta, except that it has a strong, salty flavor from the brine preserve.  Cooking the Halloumi removes all its saltiness and empowers it with a creamy texture.  Originating from Cyrpus, Halloumi is commonly served in a watermelon salad during warmer months due to its crisp freshness.  It is also fantastic when grilled or pan seared.
