Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 1 lb strawberries hulled
- 8 oz halloumi cheese sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 6 oz mixed greens
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves chopped
- 4 wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 15 minutes
- 1/2 baguette sliced 1/2 thick
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon shallot finely chopped
- kosher salt and pepper to taste
Preheat a gas grill to medium high (or use a charcoal grill).
Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, mustard, shallot, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Set aside.
Thread the strawberries onto the four soaked wooden skewers. Brush the bread slices on both sides with a little olive oil.
Place the strawberries, bread slices, and halloumi slices onto the grill. Grill the strawberries, uncovered, turning occasionally for about 6 minutes, until grill marks appear. Grill the bread about 2-3 minutes per side, turning once. Grill the halloumi slices, turning once, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove everything to a plate.
Remove the strawberries from the skewers. Divide the mixed greens and mint between four plates. Top with strawberries, halloumi slices, and bread. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, and serve.
