Wait, grilling cheese on skewers? Yes. Halloumi cheese is semi-hard and has a high melting point, so it makes a great accompaniment to your grilled skewers.

Here’s what you need for about 6 servings:

Use these ingredients to make a Greek-inspired vinaigrette.

  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • Extra lemons for garnish
  • Minced garlic (or 2 cloves to mince)
  • Dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of mint leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Whisk together the ingredients listed and toss in:
  • 2 cucumbers, cut in rounds — or you can   substitute with zucchini, cut into rounds
  • 2 red onions peeled and cut in chunks, or pearl onions
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes
  • 1 pound of halloumi cheese, cubed

Begin threading the items alternatively onto skewers and grill over direct heat until the cheese browns and the cucumbers (or zucchini) has slightly softened. This can take 4-5 minutes per side.

Extras

You can:

Reserve some of your vinaigrette to drizzle over your finished skewers.

Glaze with a mixture of lemon juice, grain mustard, honey and olive oil.

Squeeze lemon over and enjoy or serve something like with pita bread and tzatziki.
