Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Jenny. It was as filling and tasty as it was beautiful to behold. I loved all the flavors and for me the pesto was the crowning glory. The haloumi stacks were quick and easy to make with terrific results. I will be enjoying this often, into my keeper box this goes.
