Wait a minute, did we read this right? Watermelon grilled cheese bites? OMG – fantastic! We love this idea from the Brit.co blog.

 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 watermelon, seedless
  • 8 ounces halloumi cheese (firm, Greek cheese found at gourmet supermarkets)
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil to coat grill racks
  • Special Equipment: Grill

 

Directions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high. Toss arugula with balsamic vinegar.
  2. Cut off sides and ends of the watermelon to create a rectangular cube; slice into thin pieces, about 1 centimeter in width.
  3. Trim your block of halloumi to match the size of your watermelon slices.
  4. Then slice halloumi to match the width of the watermelon slices.
  5. Line a plate with paper towels to catch the juices of the watermelon after grilling. Place the watermelon slices on the grill and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Turn slices over and add the halloumi to the grill. Flip halloumi after 1 minute. Cook for 1 more minute and then remove both watermelon and halloumi slices from the grill, and place on the plate lined with paper towels.
  7. Now it’s time to assemble! Place halloumi slices on half of the watermelon slices. Top halloumi with arugula and then another watermelon slice. Serve immediately and enjoy!
