Another form of goat or sheep cheese, Halloumi, which originated in Cyprus, is one of the healthiest types of cheeses.
4 slices of whole meal, cereal, wholegrain, brown, or any kind of store-bought bread you desire. (Recommendation for kids: Focaccia)
2 thick slices of Halloumi cheese, ½ inch thick
½ medium thick cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small tomato thinly sliced, deseeded and patted with a paper towel to avoid sogginess
2 tablespoons black olives, de-pitted and sliced
1 ½ tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
2 tablespoons labneh
1. Place the halloumi slices in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes. Lay on paper towel to dry.
2. Distribute the halloumi on each side of the sliced bread and close the sandwich.
3. Lay the sandwich flat on a heated press grill and press for five minutes. For an alternative method, place both sandwiches onto a medium not-stick skillet/pan over medium heat.
4. Press down on the sandwiches for a few minutes, turn over and repeat for a few minutes on the other side. Open the sandwiches gently and fill with the remaining ingredients. Add a touch of labneh to make the sandwiches creamier.
