  • 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.

PREP TIP

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.
