Halloumi, Tomatoes and Zucchini Skewers- Easy Appetizer | You've Got Meal!

Maybe we should have started our posts in 2014 with this one. We had this appetizer for our New Year’s dinner and it was great. It can hold its own at parties, breakfasts or brunches and it can bring some Mediterranean kick to your menu. 

Like any appetizer should be, this dish is dead easy. You’re going to need:

  •  some diced Halloumi cheese, 
  • cherry tomatoes, 
  • diced zucchini, 
  • thin bacon strips, 
  • olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, mustard, lemon juice.

  1. If using wooden skewers, place them in water for half an hour before cooking so they don’t burn. 
  2. The only preparation before cooking is to cover each zucchini piece in a thin strip of bacon. 
  3. Skew the veggies and cheese in any order you want. 
  4. Lightly drizzle the skewers with a dressing made of 1 tsp. of hot mustard, some olive oil, lemon juice from half a lemon, pepper. 
  5. You can make this on an ultra hot grill or in the oven – we opted for the second way, mainly because we didn’t feel like smoking our house. Be warned that in the oven the veggies- especially the tomatoes will leave some juice that could use removing – keep an eye for that. It takes around 15-20 minutes, 170 Celsius, or until the bacon in done.
  6. Serve with some more of that mustard dressing on top and (optional) some freshly chopped basil.
