With a splash of green, these skewers are incredibly eye catching. Try using a mandoline to make uniformed slices of zucchini that are thin enough to bend without breaking.

ZUCCHINI HALLOUMI SKEWERS
12 bamboo skewers
4 medium zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise
2 pkg (250 g each) Halloumi cheese
Soak skewers in hot water for 30 minutes. Preheat natural gas barbecue on high heat for 10 – 15 minutes.
Cut zucchini halves lengthwise into ⅛ inch thick slices.
Cut cheese into twenty-four cubes, about 1x1x1½ inch each.
To assemble skewers, alternate 1 cube of cheese with 3 slices of zucchini. To add zucchini, bend slices into an “S” and slide onto skewer. Continue alternating cheese cubes and zucchini ribbons until you have 3 cheese cubes with 2 sets of zucchini ribbons between them on each skewer.
Grill skewers over high heat until grill-marked, about 5 – 7 minutes per side. Remove from heat.
