Halloumi is a salty Greek cheese that you can grill with delicious results--like a fried mozzarella stick that showed up at a barbecue. Find it at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and some supermarkets.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, combine lemon juice, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and oregano. Whisk in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Stir in tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and olives.

  • Brush cheese with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Grill, covered, over medium heat until well-marked and beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill.

  • Add mint to salad, then transfer to a platter. Top with grilled cheese slices.


Halloumi can also be cooked in a grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high. A skillet is actually more traditional, but you won’t get grill marks.
