Prepare a hot grill. Drizzle all vegetables and halloumi with a bit of olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Brush grill grate with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.
You can grill the apricots at the same time as the halloumi to ensure things come out at the right time. Prepare a hot grill (or keep grill hot from grilled vegetables). In a medium bowl, combine apricots, olive oil, honey, vanilla bean seeds, and salt. Toss to coat apricots well, ensuring vanilla bean seeds are evenly distributed.
Grill apricots, cut side down, until marked and beginning to soften, about 1 minute or so. Flip and cook about 30 more seconds on the skin side until marked. Transfer to serving platter.
Arrange all items on a platter, evenly distributing types of dishes (dips, fruits, nuts, cheeses) and colors, making sure no type of dish or color is too concentrated. You can start by placing large items like dips and arranging dipping items (crackers, grilled veggies, fresh veggies) around them.
Serve with plenty of chilled Clos du Bois Chardonnay and room temperature Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon!
