This Mediterranean dinner is so simple, so fast, and so delicious that it just really deserved to be written down. Just because it’s now living here on the blog, though, doesn’t mean it’s lost any of its simplicity.

At the end of the day, we really are just talking about some bread, some halloumi, some eggplant, and a few extra fixings added in for fun. That means it’s completely customizable. Actually, shouldn’t all sandwiches be this customizable? What is a sandwich, really, if not a blank canvas for all of our favorite things? (Can you tell I need to eat lunch??)
