Memorial weekend has just about ended, meaning that summer is finally able take center stage after sighing in the wings of a cold and rainy spring.
The recipe above is one of my favorites for casual summer grilling, because something about the lightness of the mint and nectarine (or peach) combined with the savoriness of halloumi--aka Greek grilling cheese--that makes it perfect for hot summer days.
HALLOUMI PEACH CAPRESE:
Time: 10 minutes
1 peach or nectarine
1 bar of Halloumi Greek grilling cheese
Honey, to drizzle
1 bunch of mint
1.) Start by cutting up your peach or nectarine lengthwise. Do the same with the halloumi cheese.
2.) If you have a grill, fire that baby up. If not, put a slightly greased skillet over medium heat.
3.) For those with a grill, put both the peach/nectarine and the halloumi on the grill. For those with the skillet, just cook the halloumi.
4.) Cook until a nice char, a minute or two per side, depending on the heat of your grill or stove.
5.) Remove from heat, and stack a slice of halloumi on top of a nectarine. Drizzle with honey and top with a mint leaf.
