I've always wanted to know what Haloumi cheese tasted like, and now that I know, I enjoy it very much. I never had cheese of any kind fried, but with everything else that went along with it, it was really good. Since it is a mild cheese, it went well with the chilies.

I prepared these little slices of heaven and served them on crostini, minus the lettuce. Just wonderful! This makes a wonderful appetizer. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Yummy! Yummy!! We love haloumi in any form and this was very nice indeed. Especially loved the little jolts of heat provided by the fresh chili (not so common here).
