8 oz. halloumi cheese
2 Tbsp. olive oil


• Cut the cheese into ½-inch cubes. Pat dry with a paper towel.

• Place a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. When hot, add the cheese. Sear the cheese until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool.

* For a tasty appetizer, toss grilled halloumi with a mixture of diced red onion and watermelon, and garnish with fresh mint. Turn grilled halloumi into a vegetarian main dish by mixing it with a salad of arugula, couscous and tomatoes dressed with a bright citrus vinaigrette.
