Celebrate Father’s Day with Karoun Dairies Handmade Yanni Grilling Cheese

Father’s Day is just around the corner, this year falling on Sunday, June 19th. Finding the perfect gift for Dad can be a challenge year after year, and time is running out! This year Karoun Dairies is offering a tasty and healthy alternative to the usual Father’s Day swag, turning the focus to a new, fresh idea for delicious eating with the unforgettable Yanni Grilling Cheeses, in original recipe and with jalapleno.

What better gift for Dad than a nod to his health and eating enjoyment. Yanni Grilling Cheeses are a lower fat, high protein taste sensation made in the same, strict tradition and highest-quality standards as all of Karoun Dairies cheeses and yogurts. Karoun’s cheeses are natural and handmade at their state-of-the-art California facility, strictly using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and are Real California Milk certified.

Yanni Grilling Cheese is a traditional semi-firm Mediterranean cheese, with a distinctive layered texture that is mildly salty with a rich buttery taste. Karoun’s Yanni Grilling Cheeses can withstand a tremendous amount of heat without melting, and will develop a delicious golden crust when grilled. Pan fry or serve right off the grill with sliced summer tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil and fresh oregano for the perfect appetizer, or serve as a protein for a vegetarian meal.

Fresh, healthy and uniquely delicious, Karoun’s Yanni Grilling Cheeses make the perfect gift for a healthy and tasty Father’s Day feast.
