halloumi -

Halloumi is a cheese from an acidized Cypriot country made from sheep or goat's milk or a mixture of both. Cow's milk can also be used to make halloumi.

Rennet is not used in making this cheese. Halloumi has a layered texture and a salty taste. Halloumi cheese color varies from white to yellowish. Salty taste in this cheese is due to salt water used to preserve the cheese.

Often halloumi is added with mint leaves. The mint leaves not only taste but traditionally these leaves are used as preservatives. Although originally from Cyprus, the cheese is also popular in the Middle East.
