  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 pint small cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 8-oz. piece Halloumi cheese, cut into 16 cubes


1. If using wooden skewers, soak 8 in warm water for 30 minutes. Whisk garlic, mustard, salt, pepper, juice and vinegar. Slowly whisk in olive oil until emulsified. Stir in oregano.

2. Preheat a grill to medium-high. Place 2 tomatoes on each skewer, piercing crosswise, followed by a cube of Halloumi. Continue alternating tomatoes and Halloumi until each skewer has 5 or 6 tomatoes and 2 cubes of Halloumi.

3. Whisk vinaigrette and lightly brush onto skewers. Oil grill. Grill skewers, watching closely, until cheese is lightly browned and tomatoes are beginning to soften, about 3 minutes, turning halfway through. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Serve immediately.
