Ingredients

  • 10 oz. 275 g saganaki cheese or halloumi cheese
Mint dip
  • 1 cup 225 ml Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup 60 ml fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper
Serving
  • 2 oz. 50 g lettuce
  • 1 1 lemon

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Combine ingredients for mint dip and set aside while you prepare the rest.
  2. Put saganaki cheese in a heated nonstick pan, without butter or oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes without touching it. The edges melt fast, which is normal, so apply some pressure with a spatula to even it out before flipping.
  3. Flip and fry other side for 2-3 minutes, until it gets a nice golden brown color. Gently remove from pan and cut into pieces.
  4. Serve immediately on a bed of lettuce with lemon slices and mint dip.
