Grilled Halloumi Salad
This healthy meal-in-a-bowl is a riff on Lebanese fattoush, but it has a lot more vegetables and is rounded out with some decadent grilled halloumi cheese (its star ingredient). Try out this quick and cool midweek meal recipe and enjoy it all summer long.
Yield: Serves 4
- Set oven to broil. Spread prepared pita wedges on 2 baking sheets and broil until crispy. Set aside.
- Drizzle a touch of olive oil in a large nonstick pan and fry halloumi slices until golden brown on each side.
- Toss tomatoes and cucumbers with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and za’atar, then toss with fresh herbs.
- Just before serving, break up warm pita chips and toss with dressed vegetables, then divide among 4 bowls. Lay grilled halloumi around the circumference of the bowls. Serve immediately so pita chips don’t get too soggy and cheese stays warm.
