  2. Using 4 chilled plates, stack 1 slice of tomato, then 1 slice of watermelon, 1 slice of grilled Halloumi, then top with another slice of tomato.
  3. Finish with a dollop of Kalamata pesto.
  4. Garnish each plate with arugula leaves, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and olive oil.
  5. Drizzle plates with a touch of balsamic reduction and top with basil leaves, whole or shredded.
