watermelon with mint and grilled halloumi
A few months ago, I was introduced to this tasty trifecta by a friend, who is also an excellent vegetarian cook. The second time, I got to help with the preparation and saw just how easy this summery side is: it really is just cubed watermelon, chopped fresh mint, and grilled halloumi (a Greek cheese that is made for grilling). Unfortunately, I can’t find halloumi in Hattiesburg, so I made to sure to stock up on it at Whole Foods during our trip to New Orleans earlier this week. The salad was just the thing for a rainy 4th of July afternoon.
A quick internet search for watermelon, mint, and halloumi reveals myriad variations with more ingredients, but I say less is more. Just chop, grill, toss, and enjoy.
