      Very, Very, Delicious! I had some halloumi left over from one of the previous rounds and this was the perfect recipe to finish it with. The asparagus was crispy tender, the cheese nice and mellow, and the toasted pine nuts finished it off perfectly. Thnx for sharing your recipe, ~Rita~. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.

      Oops, I posted my picture of this but forgot to review it! This was very good and much enjoyed by DH and I... especially the fried cheese! Also, it's a very pretty looking side dish. Made for ZWT6.

      We thoroughly enjoyed this tasty dish and I look forward to making it again and again. This recipe was posted in 2003 -- long before Zaar was very specific about ingredient amounts. So you might want to update some items, especially the halloumi. I had half a pound of asparagus -- or enough for 1/2 a recipe. The recipe calls for 1 halloumi cheese. Our halloumi packs average around 180 grams (or 6 ounces) so I used half a pack. I added only 2 tablespoons of pine nuts (which I toasted) and that was plenty. I also made 1/4 of the dressing (which was more than enough), and doubled the lemon juice. I think halloumi cries out for lemon. Thanks for a fantastic recipe. Yum, yum, yum!
