Homer Simpson said it best: “You don’t win friends with salad.” So we’ve taken our favorite summer salad and transformed it. Introducing grilled caprese skewers with halloumi and sourdough. It’s melty, it’s the most fun to eat and, best of all, it’s ready in under an hour.

4 to 6 servings

Garlic Oil

⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced


3 cups sourdough bread, cubed

3 cups cubed halloumi

4 cups cherry tomatoes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

¾ cup basil leaves

Balsamic vinegar, as needed

1. Make the Garlic Oil: Combine the oil and garlic and heat gently over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool completely and then remove the garlic from the oil.

2. Make the Skewers: Arrange 2 or 3 pieces of bread, 3 or 4 pieces of cheese and 3 or 4 tomatoes on each skewer. Repeat until all the skewers are assembled.

3. Brush the skewers with the garlic oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook on a preheated grill or grill pan until nicely charred on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

4. Add a few basil leaves to the end of each skewer and then roughly chop the remaining basil and garnish the skewers with the chopped basil.

5. Serve the skewers immediately, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
