Grilled Halloumi with Watermelon and Pistachios


  • Canola oil
  • 1 quarter seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into wedges
  • 1 (8-9 oz) oz pkg halloumi
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ c pistachios, chopped
  • 3 tbsp mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges


Prepare outdoor grill to high heat. Clean grill grates well and brush with canola oil.

While grill heats, place watermelon slices on serving platter. Open halloumi and lay flat on cutting board. Slice approximately 7 or 8 1-inch pieces. Place Halloumi on grill and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, about 1-2 minutes per side. You want to just warm the cheese through, if it begins to melt, remove from heat. Place warm halloumi on top of watermelon.

Drizzle watermelon and halloumi with honey, top with pistachios and mint. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
