Halloumi + Watermelon + Mint

Halloumi + Watermelon + Mint

Hey friends! Happy holiday weekend! I have the perfect little appetizer to get your party started and I’m super pumped about it! Remember last year when a group of us crazy bloggers got together for a footloose and fancy free summer potluck?┬áMy friend Meg brought a grilled watermelon and halloumi┬ásalad which inspired this little toothpick assembly thingy that became an instant favorite summer party dish. I made it for every get-together and even had it for dinner a couple times. So good! For those of you new to halloumi, it’s kinda like feta: salty but with less tang and more squeak. Plus you can fry it or grill it and it won’t melt so it’s pretty much the perfect summertime cheese – pair it with some cold sweet melon and maybe some fireworks and happy 4th my friends!
