  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¾ tbsp honey
  • ¾ tsp oregano
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Cherry tomatoes washed and halved
  • Halloumi cheese
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Basil leaves



  1. Mix all the ingredients together and keep aside.


  1. Cut the Halloumi cheese in squares approximately the same size as the cherry tomatoes. Pan fry them for a couple of minutes in a pan with extra virgin olive oil. Keep them on a plate covered with kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
  2. Put the halved tomatoes in a bowl and toss them with the vinaigrette.
  3. Put half a tomato on a square of the pan fried Halloumi cheese.  Top with a basil leaf and skewer everything together using a toothpick.  Do this for all the remaining tomatoes and Halloumi cheese squares.
  4. Serve immediately.
