Who knew that a cheese-as-bread sammie could be so refreshing? Here, grilled halloumi stands in for the bread, sandwiching mint, tomato, basil, fresh black pepper, and balsamic glaze. The result is a little bit salty, a little bit sweet, and just right on a balmy afternoon.

8 ounces halloumi
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small watermelon
2 to 3 tomatoes
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 sprig fresh mint
1 bunch fresh basil
Balsamic glaze, optional
Slice halloumi widthwise into quarters. One thick block of halloumi should give you about 3 to 4 slices of "bread." Brush olive oil on griddle, then grill cheese slices on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, cut the watermelon and tomato into square pieces, about the same size as the halloumi cheese slices.
To assemble, place 1 piece of cheese, grill marks side down and cover with watermelon, mint, tomato, fresh black pepper, balsamic glaze and fresh basil, and top with the other slice of halloumi.
