Notes

That's also great Cypriot-style with halloumi cheese!!

I just returned from vacationing in the Greek Isles and unsuccessfully tried to re-create this dish dreadfully using havarti cheese the other evening!!! Where can I find either of these cheeses???? The markets by my house (southern CA) apparently didn't carry either and I really loved this dish!
