  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 peaches
  • 4 apricots
  • 227 gr halloumi cheese
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1/3 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper

  1. Preheat barbeque to high.
  2. Remove rind from watermelon and pineapple and slice fruit into two- or three-inch squares. Slice apricots, peaches, and halloumi into half-inch slices.
  3. Pat fruit with a paper towel to remove excess moisture, then lightly brush fruit and halloumi with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 30 to 45 seconds aside. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
