Grilled Halloumi With Greek Honey


If you’re looking for the perfect, easy welcome nosh when friends arrive, this grilled halloumi with honey recipe is the answer. I prepared this when my friends arrived for a dinner party, one of our episodes on season 4 of My Greek Table, and I served it with one of the great sparkling wines of Greece, the sparkling xinomavro rosé from Amyndeon.
