Greek Halloumi Wraps

Greek Halloumi Wraps with tzatziki and salad are a super simple and refreshing meal. Perfect on their own, with salad, or chips for a heavier meal.

I love Halloumi Cheese. Like properly love it. I’d eat it every day if I could (why can’t I?!) either just as a side or as part of a main meal. 

Cooking with halloumi is super easy, and because it has such a high melting point (it doesn’t really, well at least not for a very long time…it will stick to the pan and burn if you leave it unattended for a long time though. I speak from experience here) it’s great to cook with either replacing or as well as meat. 

Meals like my Halloumi Pasta Bake and Halloumi Stroganoff are amazing. But sometimes you just want something super quick and easy.

Can You Eat Halloumi Cold?

Yes. 

You can eat it raw, or you can cook it and then eat it once it’s cooled. 

But I find cold halloumi in either sense quite rubbery and much prefer it warmed up and soft. 

What Kind of Wraps Should You Use for Halloumi Wraps?

If you’ve got time and you want more authentic Halloumi Greek Wraps, then you could make my flatbread recipe. It’s super simple and makes fantastic Greek wraps.

But if you are in a rush, or just don’t want to make your own, a pack of basic wraps from any store is fine. 

Making Halloumi Wraps

Now you might be wondering what is Greek about these Halloumi Cheese Wraps? 

Well, they are Greek Halloumi Wraps in part because of the added tzatziki, but also because the oil with chilli and oregano gives the halloumi a fantastic Mediterranean flavour. They are very summery and refreshing.

You could also make Greek Salad Halloumi Wraps with olives and feta and a drizzle of olive oil instead of the tzatziki. But, I don’t like either olives or feta so as much as I love Greek food I must say the Greek Salad is a little lost on me. 

To make my Halloumi Wraps Recipe you pretty much brush halloumi with oil, oregano and chilli (which I mix together in a little tub first) and fry until golden brown. Then, spread a wrap with tzatziki, add halloumi and your salad of choice and wrap.

Easy!

Wrapping Greek Halloumi Wraps

So, you can wrap your Halloumi in Wraps in two different ways. 

You could wrap them completely, with both ends folded in, like a burrito. Or you can do what I’ve done and just fold the bottom in, leaving the top end open.

To do this, layer your filling in a line down the middle, fold the bottom inch or so up to the filling, and wrap the sides over as tightly as you can. I then use a little strip of foil or baking paper to hold them in shape, especially if the kids are eating them. 

How to Make Tzatziki from Scratch

I have an easy recipe for tzatziki if you want to make your own. 

It’s basically just a mix of Greek yoghurt, grated and dried cucumber, oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt.  

If you prefer store-bought tzatziki, or any other dip you like would work well. Sweet chilli with halloumi is amazing!!

What to Serve with Halloumi Wraps?

I like to serve my halloumi wraps with salad, or sometimes chips if I want something a bit more filling. For lunch, they’d also be great with a pack of crisps or a dollop of coleslaw
