Halloumi Skewers

Halloumi Skewers
Looking for a vegetarian-friendly option for your next barbecue? Or maybe you just love cheese, so why not grill it? 

This recipe uses halloumi, a greek cheese with an atypically high melting point. This resistance to heat makes the cheese grillable and the possibilities endless.

These halloumi veggie skewers, drizzled with pesto, will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
