Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Grilled Halloumi Cheese
Halloumi is a traditional cheese that is made on the island of Cyprus, which isn’t officially a part of modern-day Greece but it was part of Greece at one time. It has a sizable Greek population. This dish is traditionally served as a meze, or appetizer.
Greek Style Grilled Halloumi Cheese Recipe Ingredients:
- 1/2 pound block of halloumi
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano
Instructions to Make Grilled Halloumi:
Preheat the grill to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut the halloumi cheese into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Brush each of the slices with olive oil front and back. You’ll want to save some of the oil for drizzling at the end.
Grill each slice for 2-3 minutes on both sides. Remove from the grill and drizzle with the rest of the oil, lemon juice, and sprinkle with oregano.
