Halloumi and feta cheese Recipes

Whether it's Greek or Cypriot, halloumi and feta cheese, both made from sheep's milk, conjure up sunsoaked memories of holidays in the Greek islands. Delia has used these versatile cheeses in a range of recipes from kebabs and vegetarian courgette, mint, potato and feta cakes to a wonderful fried halloumi dish with lime and caper vinaigrette - the essence of summer eating.

Feta Cheese, Spinach and Pine Nut GalettesServes 3 as a light lunch or 6 as a first course

Feta Cheese, Spinach and Pine Nut Galettes

This is a very Greek combination where, authentically, the filling gets wrapped in pastry parcels, this version, though, has less pastry and is much prettier to look at.

Courgettes, mint and feta are three ingredients that have a summery feel. Add potatoes to make little cakes and you have a treat for veggies and meat eaters alike - a great recipe for a summer buffet.
