Melons are in season right now and Harmons is celebrating with Melon Mania. Chef Lesli stopped by to share her life hack for picking the perfect melon, as well as a recipe to use melon in a unique way at your Summer cookout.

Halloumi and Melon Skewers
By Chef Lesli Sommerdorf for Harmons

Serves 4

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Tbsp raw honey
Pinch of salt
1 lb seedless watermelon, peeled and cut into 1' pieces
½ cantaloupe, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1' pieces
8 oz halloumi cheese, cut into 1' pieces
7 (10') wooden skewers, soaked for 30 minutes

Heat an outdoor grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Clean and oil the grill grate.

In a bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, and salt.

Thread the watermelon, cantaloupe, and halloumi cheese onto the skewers. Brush with the lime juice-honey mixture.

Place the skewers on the grill, cover, and cook until grill marks appear, 3-4 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with the honey-lime juice. Serve immediately.
