Ackawi cheese (Arabic: جبن عكاوي‎, also Akawi, Akawieh, and Akkawi) is a white brine cheese, native to the historical region of Palestine in modern day Israel. It is named after the city of Acre, where it first originated, the Arabic akkawi meaning "from akka". It is commonly made using cow's milk, but can be made with goat or {{wikilink|sheep|sheep's]] milk as well. It is now produced on a large scale in the Middle East, notably in Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus. A soft white cheese, it has a smooth texture and a mild salty taste. Commonly used as a table cheese, it is considered good by itself or paired with fruit.
