Halloumi PDO cheese from Cyprus

This cheese earns its PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) designation, a European Union mark of authenticity, by being produced in Cyprus according to time-honored methods. The addition of fresh or dried Cypriot mint adds a distinctive note to the flavor profile.

Halloumi PDO's claim to fame is its springy texture that allows it to be grilled or fried without melting away. This characteristic has earned it the nickname "the grilling cheese."
