Ingredients

How to make it

  • It doesn't get any easier. Spread your mayo on the bread of your choice (go light, not too heavy)
  • Add your haloumi slices (keep relatively thick)
  • Add your fresh tomatoes (fresh is KEY)
  • Add your optional pesto
  • and finally toast or grill your sandwich until the cheese melts. If you have a sandwich toaster you are in business, but if not you can just grill over any heat source to melt the cheese.

    The photo of the sandwich is stunning. I will have to look around for that type of cheese and I will definitely try it. I am trying to eat less meat and this definitely fits the bill. Thankyou for sharing...

    I found a recipe on "SimplyRecipes" and it looks much like this, but a little easier, I think ... cuz I don't know what Haloummi is either and Publix doesn't seem to carry it. Not to highjack anyone's thread, but you gotta check this out:

    It's to die for. Hubcap loved it.

    Just a thought....

    Wow Amandabear! This looks yummy and healthy (and yes I would skip the mayo) and I'll have to try this, since I have whole wheat pitas (and fresh seven-grain sourdough, which would be even better) and fresh tomatoes. What is Haloumi cheese like, though?

    I love halloumi but I gotta say that picture is so drop dead gorgeous that right now the taste of this sandwich is pretty far from my mind lol Talk about gastroporn. This here is a prime example ;)

    i was searches around for some new recipes and found yours ...I had never heard of halloumi cheese so i looked it up found out alot about it including this which i thought was funny...just thought i would pass it on to ya... thanks for the great recipe post;

    The Cypriot passion for Halloumi. But what was nearly neglected to report was that back in the 19th century, a Turkish gentleman by the name of Sidqui Effendi wrote a cooking manual in which he says of Halloumi: "This is good food which enhances sex . . ." What else can be said.... Why mess around? Have some Halloumi Today.

    Here's the thing about the melted cheese cabincrazyone...even in the picture it isn't melted...the sandwich looks delish, but the cheese isn't melted as the directions say. I can't wait to make this though, I think I might add some romaine lettuce, or fresh baby spinach...I think some roasted red peper would be good too, mmm! :) :)

    This sounds great and I'm going to look for the cheese at the store tomorrow. Those of you above who were wondering where to find it probably have by now. I looked Haloumi up on Wikipedia, and chuckled a bit when I read that you can fry it until it's brown and it won't melt. How does that work in a grilled sandwich? (I suspect the authentic stuff made from goat's milk has a higher melting point than the commercial milk based version we find in supermarkets.)
