These sandwiches are impossible to eat without making a mess, but they’re really delicious. The first time my partner made them, I requested we had them again the next day! 😋
We normally make them as rolls, using tortilla wraps, but today I was feeling innovative and went for pitta breads.
- Halloumi cheese
- Lettuce (romaine)
- Mint leaves
- Pitta bread or tortilla wraps or similar
- Olive oil
- Optional: olives for extra juiciness
Slice the halloumi and fry it in a pan until it takes some colour. Initially it might be quite watery, the colour will start showing up once the water evaporates. Then leave aside.
In parallel, have a veggie washing and slicing party. It should eventually look like this, ready to be assembled in your bread or tortilla:
Captain Obvious says: If you’re using pitta breads, you’ll have to slice them open before you put the ingredients in ✌🏻
Place the flattest ingredients first: cucumber, halloumi. Then the rest.
Add a little olive oil, and they’re ready to be eaten!
This is such a great combination of amazing flavours. Also, I will use this opportunity to say that halloumi cheese is one of the best things in Earth 🌟🌍🌟 … possibly one of humankind’s greatest achievements too!
