    Love halloumi cheese--being in Greece, we get the good stuff too. Try halloumi souvlaki some time. Great stuff.

    oh my - quite the salt bomb with halloumi, bacon AND added salt :D
    I usually let my halloumi sit in water for some 15-20 minutes to get the excess salt out.

    Otherwise this sounds great, I wonder why I never thought of combining this stuff myself! Will try it out!
