Tomato Salad with Grilled Halloumi and Herbs

Serves 4

While we love a good caprese, this salad is a nice way to change it up a little. The salty Halloumi pairs perfectly with the tomato and herbs.

1 pound small to medium best summer tomatoes, sliced into rounds

½ lemon

Flaky salt and freshly ground pepper Extra-virgin olive oil

½ pound Halloumi cheese, sliced into 4 slabs

5 basil leaves, torn

2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Arrange the tomatoes on a serving platter or four plates. Lightly squeeze the lemon over them and season with flaky salt and pepper.
  3. Brush the grill grates with oil, then add the cheese and cook, turning once, until marks appear and the cheese is warmed throughout, about 1 minute per side. Place on top of the tomatoes. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and sprinkle with the basil and parsley. Serve immediately.
