Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 6
  • 8 cups seedless watermelon, cut into 1" chunks
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ¼ cup finely shredded fresh mint leaves
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ lb halloumi cheese, cut into ½" slices
  • Mixed spring greens or baby arugula, for serving
  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the watermelon with red onion, mint, lime juice and a generous pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. Lightly brush the grill rack with a little olive oil. Arrange the halloumi on the hot grill and cook with the lid closed for about 1 minute per side or until the cheese is nicely golden brown around the edges and starting to melt.
  4. To serve, arrange a couple big handfuls of mixed greens on a large serving platter. Spoon the watermelon salad onto the greens, then arrange the slices of grilled haloumi on top. Serve immediately.
