Grilled Halloumi Salad
This simply-perfect salad is tossed with ripe heirloom tomatoes and topped with grilled halloumi and bright herbs.
5 ounces baby arugula greens or Romaine lettuce, torn in small pieces
1-2 cups heirloom tomatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 tablespoons good quality olive oil
1 Walla Walla sweet onion, thinly sliced
8 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced into 1-inch strips
⅓ cup freshly-chopped mint, basil, mint or oregano, or a combination thereof
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Place the arugula or lettuce greens in a medium-sized bowl. Add olive oil, tomatoes and sweet onion and toss very gently to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium heat, then grill the halloumi cheese strips, browning on both sides. (This should take about 2 minutes per side.)
3. Place cheese strips over greens, then sprinkle the salad with fresh herbs.
